    Third, Plato kind of hated the idea of reading aloud. Nicholas Carr explains in his book The Shallows, “Early in the fourth century BC, when the practice of writing was still novel and controversial in Greece, Plato wrote Phaedrus, his dialogue about love, beauty, and rhetoric.” In it Socrates muses on the propriety of writing, mentioning. Book 1 of Plato's Republic is often treated as a merely negative prelude to the theory of justice presented in the main body of that book.

There is a natural tendency in American discourse to promote the current system of rule as the most just, safe, and effective form of government, but there is evidence to suggest that “backsliding,” or a rise of illiberal elements in a flourishing democracy, illuminates a clear and present danger to the fabric of modern ruling systems.

The first of these is to express much of the good work being done in the field of conflict resolution and peacebuilding around the.
