Book I

Socrates and his interlocutors explore the nature of justice.

Cephalus defines justice as honesty and fulfilling one's obligations.

Polemarchus adds that justice involves helping friends and harming enemies.

Thrasymachus controversially argues that justice is merely the advantage of the stronger.

Socrates challenges these definitions, suggesting that rulers can make mistakes and that justice is a universal virtue, beneficial to all. The discussion ends inconclusively, setting the stage for a deeper examination of justice and its implications for individuals and society.
