(covers the second half of book 1 of Plato's Republic)
In this episode, Socrates goes up against his most formidable opponent yet: the sophist Thrasymachus.
Thrasymachus leaps at Socrates “like a wild beast” and yells at him for playing dirty. Then, he tells the boys that morality is a lie and that they should do as much injustice as they can get away with.
Socrates responds by winning the argument in the least persuasive way possible.
