    In Book III of the Republic, Plato warns us, that exclusive devotion to intellectual pursuits, makes people "softer than is good for them" -- spiritless and feeble-- while excessive athletic training, makes people "hard and savage," capable only of a "life of ignorance and ineptitude, coupled with lack of rhythm, and grace." The proper way to cultivate a temperate, well-balanced character, Plato insists, is to coach both the spirited part of the soul and the wisdom-loving part of the soul through a careful blend of intellectual study, and rigorous physical exercise. Thus the goal of education in Plato's imaginary Republic, is to produce citizens schooled in philosophy and science, and skilled in Athletics: paradigmatically well-rounded individuals, excellent in both mind and body.

    Reading that in high school is what convinced me to join the Wrestling team and take weight training. I was already doing Taekwondo, but I didn't see it as a "Physical pursuit" since it didn't seem as athletically difficult as wrestling did. Turns out I was right...
