Sample Essay

  1. 1. In Chapter XIII, why does Socrates think that one’s soul has three parts or elements, and how in chapter XIV does he define the main virtues of a good person in terms of these parts? Bring in relevant points from chapter XXXIV.

In proving that the human soul is divided into three, Socrates uses the example of the human body. The reaction of the body at three different instances reveals that the soul is equally divided into three parts. First, he notes that an individual may be in a state in which may have a craving or the desire for something. At the same instance, the same person feels the impulse to reject the very thing. This brings in the ambivalent state of the mind. Similarly, an individual may have the feeling of confusion. That is, there is a deep desire for something while at the same time there is repulsion of the same.
