dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this thesis is to present Plato's doctrine of man in a systematic fashion by relating the individual to the cosmos, to society, to man, and to himself. It is necessary to see man in relation to all these forces and influences in order to understand h1a purpose and desires. The strongest desire within each human breast is a feeling to belong. Man wants to belong to something or someone. If he finds the universe unfriendly, he can turn to society: from society, he may turn to friends, and from friends to himself. The feeling of and desiring to be a part of everything leads man onward. It is the compelling force in human existence. Yet, Plato points out, quite clearly man will never be satisfied to belong to one particular realm; he must feel that he is a part of all that is. The important issue is where does man fit into the scheme of things.en_US
