      What Plato can teach us about leadership: Part 1 of 2. By Dr. Jan Lüdert. It may come as a surprise, but Plato, the Greek philosopher, thought a great deal about leadership. The objective of today’s post is to sketch Plato’s leadership views as part of his thinking on political governance and to relate Platonic thinking to leadership today.   What is justice? How do we define it? Or does it even exist? Is justice a false construct utilized simply to sustain those in power? Plato thinks the only way toward true justice is through.

    Socrates - GLAUCON I went down yesterday to the Piraeus with Glaucon the son of Ariston, that I might offer up my prayers to the goddess; and also because I wanted to see in what manner they would celebrate the festival, which was a new thing. I was delighted with the procession of the inhabitants; but that of the Thracians was equally, if not more, beautiful. Commentary on Plato's Republic, Book I. Socrates, Cephalus, Old age and Justice Book I of the Republic is in many ways the most interesting and important of all the books in Plato's me, it serves the role of foreshadowing much that is to come in the same way that things are foreshadowed say, in the beginning of the movie, The Wizard of Oz.

    Lewontin thinks this makes Socrates “a convincing chairman of the department.” Leaving aside the crack at administrators, I note that Plato’s aim in the relevant parts of Book V is exactly the opposite of what Lewontin says it is.   Plato (/ or / - / BC) was an Athenian philosopher during the Classical period in Ancient Greece, founder of the Platonist school of thought, and the Academy, the first institution of higher learning in the Western world.3/5(33).

Plato wanted to bring order and clarity to our minds. He observed how many of our ideas are derived from what the crowd thinks, from what the Greeks called ‘doxa’, and we’d call ‘common-sense’. And yet repeatedly, across the 36 books he wrote, Plato showed this common-sense to be riddled with errors, prejudice and superstition.

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.

The Republic (Greek: Πολιτεία, translit. Politeia; Latin: Res Publica) is a Socratic dialogue, authored by Plato around BC, concerning justice (δικαιοσύνη), the order and character of the just city-state, and the just man.

But there certainly are moments in Plato — for example when he argues against the idea that majority rule is the standard of legitimacy or even truth — where he really wants to dramatically challenge and say, “We have an independent philosophical standard of truth rooted in the nature of reality, and what the majority thinks can’t.

But Taylor's method of reading Plato in terms of the subsequent history of philosophy, or of translating Plato's arguments and ideas into the terms of more modern philosophers is no longer the preferred method of reading Plato (for example, when he says that "for Socrates and Plato, no less than for Kant, immortality is a postulate of the Reviews: The Philosophy of Plato An well-organized overview from the Radical Academy.

At this point in the discussion of the ideal state, we should recognize that Plato perceives the state not simply as a random collection of human beings; rather, Plato thinks of the state as comprising a sort of being, a kind of entity in and of itself — we may say a kind of organism. “The so-called paradox of freedom is the argument that freedom in the sense of absence of any constraining control must lead to very great restraint, since it makes the bully free to enslave the meek.
