  • Didn't expect to see it here, huh? Well, in Book 2, Glaucon uses the story of Gyges's ring to make a point. He explains to Socrates that the ring would allow its user to turn invisible (a rather familiar concept). The user, independent of whether they are just or unjust, would inevitably abuse its power. They would steal from, kill, or RAPE whomever they wished.
