Example text

One will not drink a potion, no matter how cool and sweet, if one knows it is lethal. The pleasure of the moment will not serve as a rational excuse for suicide, and we would judge the alternative view as one that only a crazed person could find compelling. Thus, one who drinks this potion is either mad or is ignorant of the consequences. Those like Gyges, whose reason is a slave to appetite, are simply not living a life expressive of the nature of a rational being. Acts of injustice and wrong-doing are perpetrated by the mad or the ignorant.

All that is left, once experience is dismissed, is heredity. Subsequent education avails itself of worthy genetic endowments absent which the education must fail. However, given the right constitution, the individual will pass through stages of receptivity culminating in that adult stage in which philosophy can make its appeals to the latent knowledge of the soul. The ambiguity surrounding such notions might be reduced by considering the Socratic approach to a specific and essential element of knowledge, our knowledge of space.

We might say that whereas the "commoner natures" know only what they see, philosophers see that which they know a priori. Although the Platonic ideas are in this sense innate, the overall theory of knowledge is not static. We have already noted the attention given to education, and when we look into the specific program of education recommended for the Guardians we see that the Socratics explicitly subscribed to a stage-theory of cognitive development. The Athenian stranger who is the teacher in the Laws notes that virtue and vice in childhood are known to the young only as pleasure and pain (II, 653).
