Headword: *)adiki/a
Adler number: alpha,485
Translated headword: injustice
Vetting Status: high
Plato says[1] that injustice is a disease of the soul. No disease of the soul is beneficial. And so every evil is harmful to the one possessing it; injustice [is] an evil; so [it is] harmful. For injustice does injustice even to nature itself, to the extent that it itself is appropriated. It is also destructive, partly of the civic community, partly of all exchange; to humans [it is] averse and contrary to nature; for humans [are] communal by nature.
