      Book IX opens with a long and psychologically insightful description of the tyrannical man. The tyrannical man is a man ruled by his lawless desires. Lawless desires draw men toward all sorts of ghastly, shameless, criminal things. In the first section of Book 9 Socrates continues his discussion of tyranny, focusing on the tyrannical man. As readers might expect, the tyrant is depicted as a slave to his passions. For example, he beats his own father and mother, and he is inordinately greedy and concerned with bodily needs. Summing up, Socrates elicits agreement with the proposition the ideal state, under the guidance of the philosopher-king, is at .

      Palamedes a hero of post-Homeric stories of the Trojan War. Daedalus a legendary Athenian inventor, architect, and artist, who according to legend, built the Labyrinth. Pythagoreans followers of Pythagoras, a philosopher, astronomer, and mathematician of the sixth century B.C.   The Brevic Republic and the Hollaran Commonwealth became bitter adversaries after each won its independence from the Solarian Federation more than a century ago. Now heroism and revenge intertwine as the rival human fleets go to war.

      Dramatic style is forbidden since it puts dishonorable words and thoughts into the mouths of gods and heroes who should only be uttering noble, virtuous words. Because the future guardians must specialize, learning only those skills required for their occupation, literature that shows one person being many things, or changing, would confuse them. "The Recompense of Life" Summary: Book X. The final book of The Republic begins with Socrates return to an earlier theme, that of imitative poetry. He reiterates that while he is still content with having banished poetry from their State, he wishes to explain his reasons more thoroughly.

Summary: Book III, ab. Socrates continues to discuss the content of stories that can be told to the guardians, moving on to stories about heroes. The most important function of this class of stories is to immunize the young guardians against a fear of death.

Socrates announces now in the dialogue that he has demonstrated the superiority of the just life as a life to be lived, whether it include external rewards or Socrates sees the universe as being essentially moral, and he argues that experience shows us that the just man will receive his just rewards; the unjust man, his just punishment.

Book II. With these words I was thinking that I had made an end of the discussion; but the end, in truth, proved to be only a beginning. For Glaucon, who is always the most pugnacious of men, was dissatisfied at Thrasymachus' retirement; he wanted to have the battle out.

Despite the inconclusive end of the previous book, Glaucon and Adeimantus, Plato's brothers, are eager to pursue the quest for the true nature of justice. Glaucon takes the lead, first discoursing on justice as a mean or compromise, whereby men agree laws must intervene in order to prevent the excessive doing or suffering of evil.The analogies of the Sun and the Divided Line are among the most celebrated parts of the Republic, and they will be followed up on shortly, at the beginning of Book 7, by the famous Allegory of the Cave.
