Document Summary

Socrates says of him that he shows courage. Problem with sophists is that they appear to teach knowledge, but don"t actually. Socrates, from a position where he acknowledges his lack of knowledge, is actually showing his level of knowledge. However, taking an experience and looking at it with reason, you have a bigger picture, leading to real knowledge. When you pose a question in this way, you"re allowing the other person to join their opinion with your own and develop the understanding of the meaning. Justice not as a means to achieve something else. Only accepts answers in this way; if answered in this way, there is value to justice: Must praise justice in poverty over a life of injustice in luxury. We count ourselves successful when people are envious of us, rather than when we receive satisfaction is what we"ve accomplished. Plato does not recognize the difference between having something and being something.
