Book III

Socrates continues discussing the education of the guardian class, emphasizing the importance of censorship in literature and music to instill virtues such as courage, temperance, and wisdom.

He proposes a rigorous physical and mental training regimen for the guardians. The concept of the "Noble lie" is introduced to maintain social order by convincing citizens that their societal roles are divinely ordained.

Through these discussions, Socrates lays the foundation for his vision of an ideal society governed by Justice.
