Plato's Penal Code This study of ideas of justice and punishment held by the ancient Greeks traces the development of these ideas from Homer to Plato, analysing in particular the completely radical new system of punishment put forward by Plato in his dialogue, 'The Laws'. It spans traditional Greek ideas to Plato's views on homicide and poisoning by doctors.
