Salvation in Plato and St. Paul: An Essay in Normative Ethics

Canadian Journal of Philosophy 2 (3):325 - 344 (1973)

What is a good man, and how does he become good? My aim in this paper is to unravel and to assess Plato's and St. Paul's very different answers to these questions. The pivotal texts are the Republic and Paul's Epistles.
