    The posthumous publication of The Argument and the Action of Plato's "Laws" was compiled shortly before the death of Leo Strauss in Strauss offers an insightful and instructive reading through careful probing of Plato's classic text. "Strauss's The Argument and the Action of Plato's 'Laws' reflects his interest in political thought, his dogged method of following the Brand: University of Chicago Press. The Laws are discussed by three representatives of Athens, Crete, and Sparta. The Athenian, as might be expected, is the protagonist or chief speaker, while the second place is assigned to the Cretan, who, as one of the leaders of a new colony, has a special interest in the conversation.

    just city is clearly intended as much more, as a vehicle through which Plato can present his political philosophy (cf. Annas ; Klosko b). The just city is composed of three classes: rulers, and auxiliaries or soldiers, who, together, are the city's "guardians," and an unnamed class of craftsmen and Size: KB. Book description Long understudied, Plato's Laws has been the object of renewed attention in the past decade and is now considered to be his major work of political philosophy besides the Republic.

The Republic Book 3. To choose the ruler of the city, men must choose among the best people in the city: the guardians. Next, it must be decided which guardians should rule and which should be ruled.

The first step is to say that the older should rule the younger, as they are wiser, and that the rulers must be the best of the guardians. The Republic (Greek: Πολιτεία, 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.
