The dialogue
The conversation seems compulsory because he is diverted from his original
destination
However, he is intentionally going with Glauchan (he is someone whose company
Socrates enjoys)
Socrates bows to the will of the majority, but not because it is wise or just because it
is stronger and unreasonable
The Republic begins with the weakness of reason in human life
Glauchan accepts , and then, Socrates is alone in his hesitance
He must accept after Glauchan does
This conversation gives rise to philosopher rulers
Ironically, Socrates, the philosopher, fails at the beginning of the dialogue
The conversation takes place at the greatest port of Athens
ports are characteristic of diversity

Traditional societies view innovation as differently that modern society
Fears and suspects innovation
At a port, anything is accepted
