Book X

Socrates criticizes poetry and the arts for their potential to mislead and corrupt the soul, appealing to emotions rather than reason. He argues for the censorship of art in the ideal city to promote moral and intellectual development. Socrates advocates for a curriculum that prioritizes philosophy and dialectic, guiding individuals toward a deeper understanding of truth and virtue. The dialogue concludes with the Myth of Er, a tale about the afterlife that emphasizes the rewards of justice and the immortality of the soul. Through this myth, Socrates encourages individuals to lead just lives.
