The Kind of Knowledge Plato Has in Mind in His Theory of Forms Is not the Kind of Knowledge Needed to Rule a City
The good city is Plato's view of the perfect state and its relation to the human soul and its four virtues. The human soul is a larger version of Plato's community (Lee ). Therefore, each of the virtues as Plato relates them to the city, apply on a larger scale to the human soul. The following paper discusses these various aspects of the soul and how they are interrelated. It discusses how Plato applies his theory of the individual soul to his theory of the proper political order of the state. It ends with a personal assessment of the theory.
