PYTHAGORAS ON JUSTICE AND LAW
Sasu-Bolba Ioana ()
Fiat Iustitia, 2016, vol. 10, issue 2, 251-255
Pythagoras, one of the best-known but also controversial ancient Greek philosophers, can beapproached from various angles. Known especially through his mathematical formulas, as aphilosopher, the very position among legislators is a controversial act and, somehow, one ofcourage, because his conceptions on justice and laws are weird. Still, like most of hiscontemporaries, he believed in the natural order of things, claiming, for instance, that the momentpeople need laws they are no longer fit for freedom. Consequently, the link among democracy,justice and freedom, a link that seems to us only natural, is broken down. In this conflictingsituation, a decisive part redounds to education. Education is very important and should start fromearly childhood, because only in this way the destroyed equilibrium can be remedied.
