pot3003 plato s the republic 1

In Plato’s The Republic, first Thrasymachus, and then Glaucon and Adeimantus, present Socrates with a powerful challenge. They ask why, given the advantages one can receive from leading an unjust life, would anyone choose to be just. In your essay, first outline the nature of this challenge, taking special care to present the strongest version of this challenge. Now, from your reading of Socrates’ response, how does Socrates respond to this challenge? Why, essentially, is it better to lead a just life? Finally, do you find Socrates’ answer convincing, and why/why not?
