Excerpt

SOCRATES: Shall we make astronomy the next study? What do you say?

GLAUCON: Certainly. A working knowledge of the seasons, months and years is beneficial to everyone, to commanders as well as to farmers and sailors.

SOCRATES: YOU make me smile, Glaucon. You are so afraid that the public will accuse you of recommending unprofitable studies.

PLATO,
Republic VII
