By combining the two kinds of consideration, scholars have arrived at a widely used rough grouping of works, labeled with the traditional designations of early, middle, and late dialogues. The Timaeus seeks the origin of the visible universe out of abstract geometrical elements. For you are the only people known to us, whether Greek or barbarian, whom the legislator commanded to eschew all great pleasures and amusements and never to touch them; whereas in the matter of pains or fears which we have just been discussing, he thought that they who from infancy had always avoided pains and fears and sorrows, when they were compelled to face them would run away from those who were hardened in them, and would become their subjects. Clinias What are they?

    All those who are ready at a moment's notice to praise or censure any practice which is matter of discussion, seem to me to proceed in a wrong way. Athenian Let us recall how, a moment ago, we rightly stated that in regard to justice we are suffering from the greatest confusion and inconsistency. For inasmuch as reason is beautiful and gentle, and not violent, her rule must needs have ministers in order to help the golden principle in vanquishing the other principles. Important variant readings and suggestions are commonly printed at the bottom of each page of text, forming the apparatus criticus.

    In the Meno Plato refers to the Plato and modern law book Mysteriestelling Meno he would understand Socrates's answers better if he could stay for the initiations next week. My good sir, what do you mean? You are quite right in asking the question, for there certainly is such a principle, and above all in states; and the state in which the better citizens win a victory over the mob and over the inferior classes may be truly said to be better than itself, and may be justly praised, where such a victory is gained, or censured in the opposite case. And what would you say of some one who blames or praises any sort of meeting which is intended by nature to have a ruler, and is well enough when under his presidency?

Athenian Let us recall how, a moment ago, we rightly stated that in regard to justice we are suffering from the greatest confusion and Plato and modern law book. I wanted to get closer to Plato. If such convivialities should turn out to have any advantage equal in importance to that of gymnastic, they are in their Plato and modern law book nature to be preferred to mere bodily exercise, inasmuch as they have no accompaniment of pain.

Athenian Are we, then, to pay attention to the compositions of the others— [d] poets, and all who, either with or without meter, have composed and put on record their counsels concerning life,—but to pay no attention to those of the lawgivers? Clinias Very frequently. The real split that shapes our lives, our relationships, and our culture is between our inner Plato and inner Aristotle.

Suppose that we give this puppet of ours drink-what will be the effect on him? The lawgiver will realize that in all such cases not only is it better for the sinners themselves to live no longer, but also that they will prove of a double benefit to others by quitting life—since they will both serve as a warning to the rest not to act unjustly, and also rid [a] the State of wicked men, 18 —and thus he will of necessity inflict death as the chastisement for their sins, in cases of this kind, and of this kind only.

Or does this principle apply to courage only, and must he who would be perfect in valour fight against and overcome his own natural character-since if he be unpractised and inexperienced in such conflicts, he will not be half the man which he might have been-and are we to suppose, that with temperance it is otherwise, and that he who has never fought with the shameless and unrighteous temptations of his pleasures and lusts, and conquered them, in earnest and in play, by word, deed, and act, will still be perfectly temperate?
