According to plato,through the mouthpiece of socrates, to answer the above question: We build a construction of an ideal society through theory and speech and we can begin to answer the question by examining these ideals. It is easier to satisfy needs if we all live and work together; this can be done through the division of labour. Plato also says we live together because of the mutual satisfaction of needs that can be accommodated much faster much more readily. Principle of specialization: each person should do only the job for which they are best suited given social need to contribute to the welfare of civilization. Socrates" peers protested that not all needs are basic (food, water, shelter) and a life worth living is more than needs, it is also wants (art, love, poetry, music, prostitutes etc. ) Socrates concludes that his peers do not want a healthy society, but a feverish one.
