Sample text

He does so because he takes Socrates to claim that justice is that which is beneficial for all, whereas Thrasymachus is about to hold that justice is the benefit of the strong (338c1–2). Thrasymachus substitutes the strong and the weak for Polemarchus’s friends and enemies. Both take it for granted that the just is the performance of beneficial deeds; neither person recognizes a sense of justice as good independently of benefit. But Polemarchus also takes it for granted that friendship is a good.

There are two ambiguous elements in the present example. First, Socrates’s argument about the madman exhibits the previously noted point that an act is good if and only if it has good consequences, certainly not if the consequences are bad. The correct performance of the art, for example in treating a patient, is not ‘‘good’’ in the sense that justice is good. ‘‘Good consequences’’ are those that are beneficial rather than harmful. Nor can one leave it at this, since some benefits accrue to unjust acts, such as money to a bank robber.

Finally, the wealthy man with the wrong character will be altogether miserable (329d7–330a6). The unstated premise is that there are decent men with money who will bear old age well. Cephalus does not add in their case that even with money, old age is not altogether easy. He is determined to present his own situation as favorably as possible. Instead of pursuing the general topic of wealth, Socrates somewhat abruptly asks whether Cephalus has inherited most of his fortune or earned it (330a7– 8).
