This paper examines two works: Plato's 'Republic' and Aristotle's 'Ethics' and states that there are many similarities between them and yet there are also differences that are so significant as to render some of their works almost opposites. The paper highlights that both of these philosophers analyzed many parts of life looking for truth, beauty, and the reasons behind many different things. The paper also comments that they wrote things that relied upon something else, and the works that they created were more alike than many people realize, even though this is sometimes difficult to see due to the differences in speech and understanding in some of the old Greek texts as compared with modern day.
