1 As was the Cadmus legend of the men who sprang from the dragon's teeth, which the Greks believed οὕτως ἀπίθανον ὄν, Laws E. Pater, who translates the passage (Plato and Platonism, p. ), fancifully suggests that it is a “miners' story.”.   In The Republic, Socrates famously discusses the idea of the “noble lie.” The noble lie has been an issue of tremendous interest to scholars and political and sociological theorists. But is it the case that Plato endorses the noble lie, as some suggest and as the cursory reading seems to equally suggest? We must remember that Plato’s Republic is not a book .

The noble Lie was a concept introduced by Plato that he described as “the fostering of such a belief (that) will make them care more for the city and for one lead them forth under the command of their rulers” (Plato, Republic Book III).   The part of the “noble lie” that once would have horrified the elites—the claim of common kinship—is irrelevant; instead, they resist the inegalitarian part of the myth that would then, as now, have seemed self-evident to the elites as well as the underclass. Today’s underclass is as likely to recognize its unequal position as Plato’s.

There are in Plato identifiable traditional myths, such as the story of Gyges (Republic d–b), the myth of Phaethon (Timaeus 22c7) or that of the Amazons (Laws e4). Sometimes he modifies them, to a greater or lesser extent, while other times he combines them—this is the case, for instance, of the Noble Lie (Republic b–d.   Parents need to know that Two Truths and a Lie is the third book in the series that began with The Lying Game, which follows a rich, popular mean girl who was murdered -- and her nice, long-lost twin sister, who impersonates her as she tries to solve the prepared for pranks, label dropping, and frenemy behavior as Emma tries to sort out what happened to Sutton.3/5.
