 Philosopher King - Psychology Dictionary of Arguments
 
Philosopher King: Plato believed that the philosopher king is the only person who can be trusted to rule well, because only the philosopher has knowledge of the absolute truth, and is able to apply this knowledge for the good of the state. This concept is first explored in Plato's Republic, written around 375 BC. See also State, Society, Governance.
