This paper relates that 'Book IX' of Plato's "Republic" begins with a discussion of a tyrannical man and the nature that the tyrannical man possesses. The paper also points out that the text goes on to describe the interaction between those of a tyrannical nature and the city in which they reside. The paper then relates that, after describing the evolution of a tyrannical man and his nature, Socrates is now ready to make his point that a tyrant is the most unjust of all. The paper concludes that, in the context of Plato's Republic, the examination of the evolution of a tyrannical man and of his nature, is the final step Socrates needs in order to prove that justice itself makes its professor happier than injustice itself.

From the Paper:

"In the context of Plato's "Republic", the examination of the evolution of a tyrannical man and of his nature, is the final step Socrates needs in order to prove that justice itself makes its professor happier than injustice itself. Thus far in the "Republic", Socrates has completed his description of the different models of governments and how those models are represented in the people who reside in them. He concludes that the kallipolis is the best of the possible cities and a tyranny the worst. He has also previously concluded a philosopher-king to be most just."
