Thus, justice would mean, every person who is responsible to deliver justice should be obliged to perform his craft properly and eliminate any person, who within it does alien things, to harmonize the whole process. Craft justice is not instrumental to justice, it is justice in itself. Therefore, Plato says that the substance of law will not change only the approach will change. We can consider his theory as a kind of harmony between the individual being and the state as a whole. He viewed justice as an idea, an attribute of the mind, which itself in a
Odysseus rises up after Circe turns his men into animals and he goes off to save them, forgetting what they just did letting the wind go and sending them away from Ithaca. He says to Eurylochus “But I shot back, Eurylochus, stay right here, eating, drinking, safe by the black ship. I must be off. Necessity drives me” (10.299-301). Odysseus is willing to sacrifice himself and leave his other men on the boat as he feels it is his duty to get them back.
From the combination of these two ideas, we can see that people recreate the state on the basis of the form of ideal state. After mentioning this fact, we should start with the analysis of the principles of Plato 's theory of the ideal state. However, the main thing that he intends to achieve in his state is justice. By justice, he understands the situation when “every one is doing his own work, and not being a busybody”. It is essential for us to remember that the well-being of the state is more important than the well-being of citizen – so-called "commonweal".
Proceeding, what the unjust man will do is overcome and benefit from everyone and anyone. In this situation, Socrates would relate the unjust/just men with the craftsmen. In his application of craftsman analogy to this case, he tries to say that those trying to overcome men similar to them are considered to be bad craftsmen. He supports this by giving an example of doctors where he wouldn 't try to surpass another physician, instead would like to surpass the
The Republic is an inspection of the "Good Life"; the accord reached by applying pure reason and justice. The Republic can be read in several different ways: As an essay on political theory and practice: As a educational handbook or as a protection of moral behavior. For example. While we 'll take declaration of each of these constructions along the way, our crucial attention in what trails will be on the elementary supernatural and epistemological subjects, opening questions about who we are, what is real, and about how we know it. Read in this style, the discussion as a whole invites us to share in Plato 's vision of our place within the ultimate structure of reality.
His father recommends not to go to sea, but Kruse longs for a life as a sailor. Kruse seems quite stubborn because even though he should not go to sea because it is dangerous, he does it anyway. His endurance ensures his survival through storms, slavery and twenty years of isolation on a deserted island. Friday Friday never seems to be opposed to his new leader, and he can sincerely see it as an appropriate replacement to save his life. But any Friday response may be, his tragedy has become a symbol of imperial pressure throughout the modern world.
Repetitive sentences such as these: “And the oiler rowed, and then the correspondent rowed. Then the oiler rowed” displays the tediousness of their task. The dinghy functions as a unit, combining the strength of each man. Although it could be argued that the cook does not provide a specific purpose as his job could be performed even by the injured captain.

Polemarchus’ idea of justice, “By defining a friend as one who both seems and is an honest man: while the man who seems, but is not, and honest man seems a friend, but really is not. And similarly for an enemy” (335a). What Polemarchus is trying to say is that do good for friends and harm for enemies for justice. To go more in depth into what he is saying, Polemarchus believes you must first determine who is your ally to do good by him and also determine who your enemies are thus to do “harm” by him. On receiving this point of view based on Justice Plato went further to decipher Polemarchus’ idea.
