1. What is the point of Plato’s comparison of a harmonious soul to a healthy body?

Just as your body suffers when your organs aren’t working as they should, your soul suffers when its parts aren’t performing their proper functions. Just as you need physical exercise to keep your body healthy, you need to intellectual exercise to keep your soul in order. Correct! Wrong!
