Adeimantus, then, was vigorously defending a political ethic of self-advancement, self-interest, and the benefits of injustice at the start of the Republic.

Those familiar with the literature will be aware of the objections Rosen's raises to these arguments and also the many possible replies that have been given. And do those who read him Engagement with Platos Republic various watered-down "mutilated" versions hear about Odysseus and Calypso, or Ares and Aphrodite? At any rate, they are far from being corrupted in Egypt.

If justice is an intrinsic good then we must answer it was the just man. The second reference to Egypt characterizes the Egyptians as lovers of money.
