    Tales of Virtue (Set of 8 Books) Honesty, Courage, Love, Wisdom, Humility, Generosity, Moderation, and Perseverance Unknown Binding – /5(2). He believes that wisdom, courage, moderation, and justice combine together to form The Republic. However, Plato’s four virtues individually do not necessarily produce a utopian society. A combination of the four in each citizen is imperative in producing the ideal society.

    Moderation is the process of eliminating or lessening extremes. It is used to ensure normality throughout the medium on which it is being conducted. Common uses of moderation include: Ensuring consistency and accuracy in the marking of student assessments.   The story features two schoolchildren, Zack and Annie, who have been neighbors and friends for many years. In each episode of the series, one of them commits an act contrary to that day's chosen virtue (loyalty, compassion, courage, moderation, honesty, etc.) and suffers pain as a result (be it physical or moral).

    Having established the city, Socrates turns to the question of virtue. Since it is the best city possible, it contains all the virtues. Wisdom is the virtue of the guardians because of their education, courage is the virtue of the warriors who fight for the city, and the virtue of moderation is in each residents' happiness with his occupation. The phrase, "Moderation in all things," is common extrapolation of Aristotle's Doctrine of the Mean (as presented in his Nicomachean Ethics).His ethic works around finding the mean, or middle ground, between excess and deficiency.

Open : Our wisdom is to partake of the various dishes which are on the table our bountiful Host has provided for us; for as the body is the better for eating of many "meats," so is the soul all the stronger and all the fairer for partaking in moderation of all the various sources of spiritual nutrition that are within its reach.

- C. [Lawton B. Evans, A History of Georgia for Use in Schools (New York: American Book Co.,), p. ] Actually, the qualities of wisdom, justice, and moderation with reference to government were first mentioned in chapter 4 of Plato’s Republic.

In that work, Plato analyzed four cardinal “virtues” associated with government: wisdom. The four cardinal virtues – justice, wisdom (prudence), courage (fortitude), and moderation (self-control, temperance) – come not just from Plato or Greek philosophy.

You will find them in Scripture. They are knowable by human nature, which God designed, not Plato. But since they are in charge, their wisdom becomes the city’s virtue.

Courage lies with the auxiliaries. It is only their courage that counts as a virtue of the city because they are the ones who must fight for the city. A courageous farmer, or even ruler, would do the city no good.

Moderation and justice, in contrast to wisdom and courage, are spread out over the whole city. Plato on wisdom, courage, temperance and justice, from The Republic, Book IV. Socrates proceeds: But where amid all this is justice. Son of Ariston, tell me where. Light a candle and search the city, and get your brother and the rest of our friends to help in seeking for her.
