Psychodynamics of Justice -The mind, the heart, the desire, each soul of an individual is compromised of each of these three -Rulers (guardians) – mind -Auxillary –Spirit Workers – Desire -It is not that the Rulers or Auxillary do not have desires, rather left to their own devices they will be wise or spirited -How do the humans inside the ruler’s mind determine rationality? Circular logic, I am a rational human because I have a rational human in my head. It assumes we know what a rational human is in the first place. (Homunculus theory) -In the Kalipolis, everyone’s soul is identical, the auxiliary and the trader/producer listen to the leader (We must find some explanation to see why they are not all identical) Problem: To the ruled by reason is to have a little reasonable person inside your head, but why is he/she reasonable? -desires must be coordinated with each other, the guardians can’t reprogram our desires, it must have external pressure Desires ordered, coordinated -Desires to have homework done
