Book II

Glaucon and Adeimantus challenge Socrates to justify why one should be just rather than unjust.

Glaucon presents the myth of the Ring of Gyges, arguing that people are only just for the benefits of reputation and fear of punishment.

Socrates embarks on constructing an ideal city, Kallipolis, to illustrate justice on a larger scale. He outlines the city's classes and the importance of education in cultivating virtues among citizens, setting the groundwork for further exploration of justice.
