This new way of thinking on justice and love for knowledge established the idea of karma, being considered as the good or bad consequences of an action.

Spartan Education - 1,308 words

Plato believed that children are trained physically so that they may not be compelled through bodily weakness to play the coward in war or on any other occasion (Protagoras 326.C). However, it seems that the training the children received would be much more useful in athletic competitions held at religious festivals than in actual combat. When comparing the hardships the young Athenians went through to that of the Spartans, they ...
