Justice is one of the most ubiquitous topics in Plato’s dialogues, second in importance only to reason. It is discussed to some degree in almost every major dialogue including even the Parmenides (130b7–9, 130e5–131a2, 135c8–d1) and the Timaeus (41c6–8, 42b21–2), but it is only in the Republic that the concept is defined and the definition argued for. Consequently, any account of Plato’s theory of justice must concentrate on that dialogue.
