I know he believes philosophy should be the basis for society but what is his view on social order? Is it compatible with the Homeric-poetic view of social order (which is, i think, to believe and obey without question)?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Isn't it fun when college students ask us to do their assignments for them?
Just asking for a little direction...
I think that Plato's best known quotation should be the start of your essay.
When the seagulls follow the trawler, it is because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea.
That really sums up the heirachical nature of society, the trawler being the aristocrats, the seagull being the ordinary people.
and the sardines some minority group?
