The purpose of this study is to find a coherent theory of a working social order as implicit in Plato's philosophy. "Social order" is to be defined as the synthesis of the activities of man in a group unified by a common goal. The study is centered about three dialogues, the Republic, the Statesman, and the Laws. The study seeks to present the relation of the greek concept of arete to the thought of Plato. Correlated to the study is a comparison of the Platonic social order to some other theories of social organization. [TRUNCATED]
