Example text

Regulated breeding can reduce these accidents to a minimum. By the standards of contemporary democracies, Plato's imaginary republic seems harsh indeed. Yet, even in America, there have been laws proscribing consanguinous marriages, marriages of the mentally defective, and even marriages by those with certain hereditary defects. Public education is compulsory, curricula are established by state boards, religious rites are disallowed, genetic counselling is widespread, and the abortion of "defectives" is encouraged.

Population is carefully regulated, each city limited to 5040 citizens (a number defended because it can be divided evenly by every integer from 1 to 10). Plato does not mention the plague of 430, but it is likely that the recommendations against crowding derived in part from such concerns. We also detect in this emphasis upon orderly division a retrospective appreciation of Pericles' land reforms, if not a lingering attachment to Pythagorean numerology. Education is most carefully orchestrated.

Meno's slave would have as much of a right to judge of triangles before instruction as after, even though his judgments would contradict each other. If Socrates must reject the epistemological relativism of Protagoras, so too must he reject the moral relativism of Thrasymachus, Glaucon, and Adeimantus, and for the same reason. The Pythagorean theorem does not rest its truth on public opinion. The laws of harmony are not subject to human desire. Both become accessible through philosophical examination, which will lead also and inexorably to a life of temperance, justice, and spiritual health.
