PLATO

by mario

The State Plato’s philosophical ideology had many social implications. Plato declares societies have a tripartite class structure matching the structure of the individual soul. The structure of the individual soul stands for different parts of the body. According to Plato a state is made of different kinds of souls, which will weaken form aristocracy (rule by the best) to timocracy (rule by the honorable), then to oligarchy (rule by the few), then to democracy (rule by people) and finally to tyranny (rule by one person, a tyrant). He is trying to warn us about the different kind of rulers that can rule the state and which wise souls and best chosen as advisors to the rulers.

Don't really think Plato rated 'democracy' that highly. Maybe he had a point. Rule of the majority can quickly become rule of the mob.
