Abstract
When Socrates leads the discussion about the beginning of a (theoretical)
city in Republic, self-insufficiency and various needs which individuals
undergo are the founding reasons of that establishment. So, it might seem
natural to take that the very self-sufficiency would be the task and aim of
his city. In this paper Ive reexamined the thesis that the self-sufficiency
was the real ideal, telos of Platos state. Aristotles interpretation and critic
on that point have been reconsidered. One may also argue that the division
of labor, the running principle Plato has advocated, serves his city only as
a tool for the efficiency. But the division of labor is not a simple tool
to utilize the fulfillment of necessities. It was a intentional efficiency to the
aim of the state from the very beginning.
Happiness (eudaimonia), not self-sufficiency is the proper aim of Platos
state. But Socrates himself had met some serious challenges in the course
of immediate dialogue. That is, he has not allowed his guardians the
happiness they deserve. The success of defense (apologia) against that
challenge mainly depends on the clarification, or reorientation of happiness
and the interpretation of the concept of what are appropriates (ta
prosēkonta)
