Classes of Goods By Plato

According to Plato in his second book of Republic, there are three classes of Goods.

Firstly are the ones that we welcome for our own sake and they are independent of their results for example enjoyments, amusement which glee us at that time but nothing follows after that.

Second are the ones which we desire not only in themselves but also due to the results that follows like health, knowledge , wisdom.

And lastly the ones that one would not choose for own sake but for the results and rewards that follows like caring a sick, or a physician’s art etc.


Which one would you like to choose?
