Men do bad when they do what they merely think best rather than what they most deeply desire That seems to be the central point of this long dialogueThe age old uestion is how to get men to follow their true Will ie Self rather than ego Does the dialogue answer it The answer it gives appears to be Engage in the combat of life live as well as you can and then after death you will attain the Islands of the Blessed and not the realm of the wretched Tartarus But that doesn t answer the uestion of how to distinguish between the desires of ego and the true Will

Read Gorgias AUTHOR Plato

D prestige or genuine concern for the moral betterment of the citizens These uestions go to the heart of Athenian democratic principles and are relevant than ever in today's political clima. An excellent example of philosophy justifying itself Everybody has heard the whole cranky rather arrogant and patronizing remark made when someone who doesn t read very much or doesn t read for pleasure or instruction feels like scoffing a bit Why are you reading this boring old stuff Philosophy s good when you re younger and you don t know anything but once you become a real adult you should just let that stuff go It s interesting that Socrates calls Gorgias out for basically making that case outright and putting Socrates in his place or seeming to by doing so Socrates asks him if he thinks a Catamite the catcher in the boudoir if you please is living a good life Gorgias sputters and says no Well says Socrates if you think that constantly seeking pleasure and satisfaction is all you need maybe those very desires you have aren t going to be fulfilled and so you re really just constantly consistently being the butt boy for your own endless fruitless pursuit of gratification It s always amused me how Socrates gets away with laying the smack down like that

    Well, if one was to sum up, it would be hard to go past Plato’s own summary: “And of all that has been said, nothing remains unshaken but the saying, that to do injustice is to be avoided than to suffer injustice, and that the reality and not the appearance of virtue is to be followed above all things, as well in public as in private life; and that when any one has been wrong in anything, he is to be chastised, and that the next best

    What I recall about Gorgias again from my sopho university philosophy class was that there was a lengthy discussion of orators and how they are able to dupe audiences even folks technical than the orator him/herself.
