Platons Politeia I und die Gerechtigkeitstheorien von Aristoteles, Hobbes und Nietzsche
»The Question of Justice«
The author shows the systematic and historical importance of the first book of Plato's Republic for the question of justice. The contents, correlations and inconsistencies of the answers of the three Socratic dialogue partners are examined and compared to the theories of Aristotle, Hobbes and Nietzsche. It is argued, that the Socratic question provides a way to overcome the inconsistent notions of justice.
