Plato & Aristotle in Accord: On Justice with Greg Gauthier (3 Sessions)

Plato and Aristotle stand as the archetypal symbols of the perennial Parmenidean debate between The One and The Many. In the realm of justice, it is typically believed that Plato represented the view of the universal pattern of justice, while Aristotle represented the view of the particular pattern of justice. But are they as divergent as this characterization suggests?

This course will explore the concept of justice as conceived by both Plato and Aristotle, and you may be surprised to learn how similar their understanding was.
