    Perhaps they understood...”He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?” (Micah 6:8)

    Source(s): “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.“ (Ecclesiastes 12:13-14)

    So you reckon Plato believed that values are central to human life.

    For he did teach in the best Schools as one of the very first University 

    teachers in Ancient Greece.

    Odd then that he has little to say about discrimination, Racism & Sexism

    isn't it?

    For Those SAME SCHOOLS discriminated between teaching Greeks &


    For those SAME SCHOOLS discriminated between teaching Greek males

    & other females... sexism?

    You need to compare & contrast your Question, something like..

    can we ever know if Plato understood which values are good or wrong?

    As in selecting one race or sex of people to teach over the other races, 


    Did Plato TEACH OTHER ANCIENT GREEK TEACHER'S these differences?
