Despite having been assigned it in my Classical Political Thought class I only in the past few days finished reading Plato s Laws apologies to Dr Walsh Which is a bit unfortunate since it s bloody fantasticI confess to having had a bit of a meh relationship with Plato in the past I mean the number of his dialogues that I ve actually enjoyed as opposed to just kind of thinking they re okay is pretty small basically the Ion and maybe bits of Epistle VII Sure I ve read and discussed what are usually counted as his greatest works Gorgias Meno Apology and of course The Republic and even taught them in class I prefer teaching the Crito since it s short and a uick read for the students But this was the first book where Plato and I really clicked It was the first one of his that I ve read where I found myself wanting to read to find out where the argument was going and to see what the next step in his argument would be Part of the reason for this may have been a translation issue I read the Penguin Classics translation of The Laws done by Trevor Saunders an excellently done work with good footnotes and introductory summaries and part of it may have been the fact that all the other times I ve read Plato it was for class I can t say for sure what the reason is just that this has ended up being a book that I truly enjoyed reading and look forward to someday exposing to studentsThe way I ve regularly had The Laws explained to me is that it s Plato s admission of failure In undergrad it was covered in a Greek civilization course where the prof for whom I have the deepest respect suggested that Plato had given up on trying to get anyone to care about the virtuous philosophical life and turned his final hopes on getting them at least to be good because the law said they had to In the aforementioned graduate course the professor for whom I also have the deepest respect suggested that The Laws is of an appendix to The Republic wherein the Philosopher Kings who exist at the center of the ideal state in The Republic have withdrawn from society leaving behind only the laws they crafted I suspect this view is traceable back to a philosopher named Eric Voegelin for whom I have slightly less respect but whom I occasionally enjoy reading Having finally read the book myself I think I disagree bit with both of these position Certainly it s true that Plato is issuing some kind of passionate call here after all this was his last and longest work But I think a better way to read The Laws is as a second shot at The Republic In The Republic Plato had argued that people ought to live virtuous lives within virtuous states The same argument is at work here But In The Republic when asked how such a state could ever come about Plato gives a mix of reasons including but not limited to education hard work divine intervention leadership by a philosophical elite some form of natural selection and a life of continually increasing and unrestrained virtue In other words all of the ways in which people expressly do not want to live How does Plato argue his state will come about in The Laws By playing games drinking a life free from all but the most moderate work load and enough sex to keep the state populated Same goals different means It s true that there are differences between The Republic and The Laws perhaps most noticeable is the presence of families in The Laws which had been outlawed in The Republic in lieu of communal wives and children but these differences are very much organizational differences rather than differences in the philosophical goal of virtueSuch at least is my read on the relationship between The Republic and The Laws they re not really two radically different books they ve just got two different audiences In a sense I think it could be argued that the former was written as a guide for the Philosopher Kings while the latter was written for at least the Guardian class if not for the rest of the citizen bodyThe biggest major modern issue with The Laws at least as of the writing of the translator s Introduction in 1970 is the uestion of whether or not Plato was a totalitarian This goes back to a book by Karl Popper written in the 1930s called The Open Society and Its Enemies Popper argued that any philosophy that teaches moral absolutism will eventually lead to totalitarianism since moral absolutes are non negotiables As someone who clearly believes in moral absolutes Plato must therefore be a totalitarian Variations on this theme have followed Popper but all are loosely tied back into his original thesis The translator takes a fairly middle path through the book pointing out places where Plato seems to be totalitarian and places where he is fairly liberal in his outlook the absolute euality of women for example I think the problem is we re asking an anachronistic uestion Were we to say to Plato are you a totalitarian or not His reply would be huh That is to say no such category existed in the Ancient World In one sense all ancient societies were totalitarian There was no distinction between the individual and the state After all an ancient would argue states are made up of bodies of individuals So when you do something wicked that makes the state that much worse And when you do something virtuous that makes the state that much better With that being the case why wouldn t the state have the authority to regulate even the most minute details of daily life should it be necessary for preserving the virtue and dignity of the society This would not be seen as either repressive or intolerable Really the only two political categories of major concern to ancients in any meaningful sense were 1 who was allowed to participate and 2 what was the goal of the government Any combination of answers to these uestions could be or less totalitarian by modern standards that simply wasn t something they were interested in And this reflection is going on probably longer than it should After all I haven t even said much about the book itself I think this might have to turn into at least one post if only to keep the length of things manageableSo the short version is this is an excellent book that raises all kinds of great uestions and gives great answers to uestions like what is the role of education in society and individual life What should be the goal of legislation Who watches the watchmen seriously that s one of them What is the role of the elderly in society And so onHighly recommended

I did not get much out of this one unfortunately It is not Plato at his finest but it contains some fascinating passages on the nature of the soul the governance of human virtue the ualities of a good ruler and similar topics Unfortunately the book is conservativereactionary long winded and boring Politically it represents a combination of traditional ideas of governance based on the mutually complementary traditions of Sparta and Athens with innovative ideas of governance based on Plato s own philosophy The traditional ideas of governance are uninteresting philosophically except for Plato s attempts to extract philosophical meaning out of them The innovative ideas of governance while interesting philosophically are dangerous in their mix of political naivete and gleeful collectivism Ethically it likewise combines traditional and innovative ideas but most of this is simply a rehash of similar discussions on virtue in Plato s other dialogues including The Republic and several others What this regrettable book desperately needs is an abridged edition without all the Mosaic Law nonsense I intend to read this again with attention and care some day Not sure if it deserves it But Plato at his worst is still Plato
