This means that both philosophers believe that in order to make the society work, people should work harmoniously. For Aristotle, the people in a society must cooperate with each other as the members of a family would (Aristotle, Politics I.3). Plato agrees with Aristotle on the idea of cooperation but proposes a people grouped into farmers, builders, clothiers and so on, and adds that there must be guardians who possess “the love of wisdom…high spirit and quickness and strength” (Plato, Republic 376c).
