THE REPUBLIC BOOK 8:
3 NOVEMBER

A DAY WITH PLATO

Now that Socrates has finished describing the just city, he returns to the task of describing the four unjust constitutions of city and man. In addition to the aristocracy  and the philosopher-king, Socrates identifies four other city-man pairs: there is a timocracy, and the honor-driven man who resembles and rules that sort of government; there is oligarchy, which resembles and is ruled by a man driven by his necessary appetites; there is democracy, which resembles and is ruled by a man driven by his unnecessary appetites; and there is tyranny, which resembles and is ruled by a man driven by his unlawful appetites.
