Adding a philosophic view on an idea, which is already complex enough might not sound so appealing, but Socrates’ explanation of justice is actually quite simple and clear to understand. Above all, Socrates states that justice can exist both in a community or an individual, and that justice in the state is easier to find than justice in the individual. (434e) Therefore, by finding justice in the state, justice in the individual can be found as well. (434e) Socrates begins his explanation by identifying the four cardinal virtues; wisdom, courage, self-discipline, and justice in the state.

(431c) Adding on, he suggests that when the three different parts of the state perform their specialized virtues well and harmoniously, justice can be realized. To explain the statement above further, that is because justice is minding one’s own business and not interfering with…

  • Criminal Justice In Restorative Justice

    while being willing to forgive the individual (Zehr & Mika, 1997). After doing so, the community must be willing to prevent further harm by safely reintegrating both victim and offender into the communal fold.

  • Justice: A Complex Theory Of Justice

    Justice is a complex theory to ponder on; many people have different definitions for what is justice. When it comes to justice it is not clear, people get judged different for being white, black or Hispanic. I feel our judicial system tends to treat people sentencing like a game of dice.

What would be the percentage of…
