Plato’s Republic,Book Review

In Book 2 of Plato’s Republic, Glaucon argues that justice is defined as an arrangement among individuals to avoid harming each other, thus ensuring mutual security. On this view, justice is a human creation, something we invented to meet human needs: because we lack the power to harm others and escape being harmed by them in return, we agree not to harm each other, and mutual agreement is justice. Write an essay explaining this ‘social contract’ theory of justice. and present reasons defending it.
