After considering the other types of governments and individuals in last month’s installment, Dr. Gary Gregg takes a deeper dive into Plato’s outline of the mind and government of the tyrant. He then discusses a new image Plato provides of the human soul in book IX, and concludes by considering the idea of the proper cultivation of one’s soul.
Target 6 Reading: Book IX, pp. 251-275 of "The Republic of Plato", 2nd edition, translated by Allan Bloom (Basic Books, 1968 and 1991).
