[477d] in general, vice of soul?

Yes, we have.

So then either it is most painful, that is, foulest of these vices by an excess of painfulness, or else of harmfulness, or in both ways?


Then do you think that being unjust, licentious, cowardly, and ignorant is more painful than being poor and sick?

No, I do not, Socrates, from what we have said.

Portentous then must be the extent of harm, and astonishing the evil, by which the soul's vice exceeds all the others
