In his philosophical text, The Gluttony and philosophical moderation in Platos Republic book, Plato argues that justice can only be realized by the moderation of the soul, which he claims reflects as the moderation of the city.

He engages in a debate, via the persona of Socrates, with Ademantus and Gaucon on the benefit, or lack thereof, for the man who leads a just life. The argument of the Republic is the search after Justice, the nature of which is first hinted at by Cephalus, the just and blameless old man—then discussed on the basis of proverbial morality by Socrates and Polemarchus—then caricatured by Thrasymachus and partially explained by Socrates—reduced to an abstraction by Glaucon and Adeimantus.

One key virtue that Plato emphasizes is that of moderation, which applies to all individuals within the city (b). While some virtues such as wisdom, spirit, and temperance are designed for certain classes in Plato's Republic, Plato believes that they must be moderated by other virtues to result in a just society ().Author: C Sampan.

Moderation and justice, in contrast to wisdom and courage, are spread out over the whole city. Moderation is identified with the agreement over who should rule the city, and justice, finally, is its complement—the principle of specialization, the law that all do the job to which they are best suited.

Analysis: Book II, a–c. Coming on the heels of Thrasymachus’ attack on justice in Book I, the points that Glaucon and Adeimantus raise—the social contract theory of justice and the idea of justice as a currency that buys rewards in the afterlife—bolster the challenge faced by Socrates.

Introduction. I first started reading “The Republic” and other Plato’s dialogues when I was a teenager. The edition I read was the “Great Dialogues of Plato”, translated by W.H.D. Rouse. The moment I picked up the thick and wordy book, I was hooked.

Heinze critiques what he calls 'classical' Western justice theory for having perpetuated that logical error, which first appears in Plato's Republic, but manifests throughout traditional political philosophy, in thinkers otherwise as different as Aristotle, Aquinas, Locke, Rousseau, Hegel and : Plato.

The Republic is undoubtedly one of Plato's masterworks and one of the most influential and widely read books in the history of is also devilishly difficult to truly understand.

According to the above plan, the Republic is made up of three somehow embedded blocks. From the most superficial viewpoint, the Republic is made up of three parts: a main body, the dialogue proper, preceded by an introduction and followed by a conclusion of almost exactly the same size.

The introduction presents five challenges to Socrates' notion of justice, each by a different character. Socrates turns from justice on a large scale in the city, to justice in the individual. Just as the city has in its residents the virtues of wisdom, courage and moderation, the individual soul has three parts.

That which measures, calculates and thinks is the rational part. That which lusts and hungers is the irrational or appetitive part.
