Here and following, however, the parenthetical page numbers refer to the standard Greek manuscript by Stephens. 7. Ibid. 8. Ibid. 9. Ibid. 10. , Simon and Schuster, New York (first printing, 1945). See especially pp. 10-105. 11. The Dialogues of Plato, p. 874. The reader will gain useful insights into Platonic philosophy by reading Professor Jowett's Index. The Index is not merely an alphabetical list of terms but is, in addition, an analysis of the meaning of the terms in context. 12. Ibid. 13.

Law is blind in the received sense, and justice is swift. Population is carefully regulated, each city limited to 5040 citizens (a number defended because it can be divided evenly by every integer from 1 to 10). Plato does not mention the plague of 430, but it is likely that the recommendations against crowding derived in part from such concerns. We also detect in this emphasis upon orderly division a retrospective appreciation of Pericles' land reforms, if not a lingering attachment to Pythagorean numerology.

The theory, which would be defended later by Plato, is that the human senses are confined to the realm of appearances, whereas what is true occupies a realm beyond the senses. Although their teachings and even their methods of philosophizing differed, the pre-Socratic philosophers at large shared a set of common concerns that might be economically reduced to four, the same four that have guided speculation ever since. In the broadest sense of the terms these are theology, physics, ethics, and psychology.
