I read, I write, I try to make a difference.

I write articles in several areas.

Defining Justice

Plato’s longest and most detailed dialogue was The Republic. One of Plato’s central topics in the book is the question of what Justice is. For him, justice is both an ethical issue and a political issue. Justice concerns how individuals should interact with each other and how society should be structured and ruled. In exploring the question about defining justice, Plato uses his usual literary device of Socrates discussing the question with alleged authorities. They give Socrates examples and definitions of justice; each one in turn Socrates shows to be inadequate.
