Although Socrates says that the path to the greatest good is in right action, Plato insists that it is instead in right thought (Strathern, 1996, p. 25). When one is full of right thought, the perfect form
at governs the entire soul of the individual and therefore one needs to seek both knowledge and truth in his pursuit of the ultimate form of good; however, Plato believes that the form of good is superior to both truth and knowledge as they are stemmed from the form of good.
