Stauffer has opened my eyes anew to Plato. It's a great book that should be read by smart students (of all ages) interested in the question of justice and seeking a more profound understanding of it's roots in the Western tradition. Warning: reading this book can make common opinions seem facile making tea with those annoying associates that much more unbearable. A cure I found is in transferring the meme's embedded in Stauffer's book into their heads. The thoughts provided by this book seem to have the positive long term affect of making them more reflective people. Bravo to the author for this ammunition of wisdom and may we see more from what is clearly a budding great mind in the future.
