For Philosophers to rule and be 'guardians' of everyone else, as poor people shouldn't get to vote and make decisions.
The Greek Philosopher Plato is a student of Socrates and the teacher of Aristotle. All his philosophical writing are presented through the dialogue in which Socrates is the ma…jor character. This essay is taken from his philosophical book 'The Republic' and in this essay Plato is talking about differences between men and women, the role of men and women and the position, status and functions of men and women in the ideal society. This essay begins with Plato's concept of men and women differences and considers that man is the guard of the flock of the family. By using the analogy of the watchdog to both men and women, Plato considers that the female watchdogs should breed and rear the child. Women, they are physical disable and they should do the light indoor works which fit their physical structure. On the other hand male watchdogs are physically strong so they should do the outdoor works such as fetching bread and butter to the family. Their physical structure is very strong so they can go to the hunting and warfare. Plato says, " The female conceives and the male begets". This expression meaningfully reflects Plato's idea and reconsiders that the reproductive system determines the labor value. In other words, Plato believes that the reproductive process makes women physically weaker and their physical structure is not suitable to do the heavy labor such as going to hunting and war. Similarly, he believes that women are fit to work inside the house in the light works. Men never become pregnant and they are always physically fit. So, he says that man should go outside different form as teacher, carpenter, lawyer, priest and so on. According to Plato women can do better in weaving and cooking because they have natural aptitude in such job. Men can better hunt and fight because they have the natural aptitude in such works. Plato further says that a woman and a man in ideal society should be treated not because of the gender or the sex but because of the individual natural aptitude and talent. He says that woman is naturally weaker but any woman with strong muscular body like the body of the man can share the physically challenging work. She should be given the same education and training like the male. It reflects that Plato believes the women also can do strong and physically challenging works if they get proper guideline and training. By this Plato tries to clarify that both men and women have their own duties as their body structure. They should play their role as fitted for them. But there should not be any discrimination on the name of their role and gender. In ideal society both male and female should fulfill their own duties where there has no place of any exploitation.

Rather than the practical pursuit we are accustomed to, for Plato, Politics is an intellectual faculty. Governance by non-philosophers is to be governed by opinions, beliefs a…nd self-interest; in contrast the philosopher ruler will govern with virtue and justice with no hidden agenda. The philosopher is in love, in love with learning, knowledge and truth. It is important to make a distinction here between the acquisition of knowledge and the acquisition of truth, because knowledge is not necessarily the truth.
While sometimes seeming to hold the same view, Aristotle generallydiffered from Plato in respect to the "Ideal Forms" in claimingthat they are conceptual rather than metaphysi…cal or real. In otherwords, for Aristotle, the forms exist only in the mind rather than(as Plato saw it) outside of it, as well.
vampires are not real. They just use that name and make them look dead and Gothic and then use them in movies to make people think they are real.
Plato opposed poetry (as well as music and theatre) in some cases in his ideal Republic because he believed it was debilitating and a hindrance in comparison to more productiv…e ventures, such as universal education. This is in direct contrast with the Athenian society he lived in, one that valued poetry very highly.
Plato was a philosophical scholar from democratically-ruled Athens , a part of Ancient Greece .
He opted for philosophers (lovers of wisdom) 'the thought of onewise man may be better than the many thoughts of the foolish'.
