  1. Introduction. The Theaetetus, which probably dates from about BC, is arguably Plato’s greatest work on epistemology. (Arguably, it is his greatest work on anything.) Plato (c– BC) has much to say about the nature of knowledge elsewhere. actions are rightly called courageous. Hence it is 'the unity, not the uni-versality' of courage that Laches has failed to capture, and he has thus given 'a partial or incomplete answer'4 to Socrates' question - which Socrates then easily leads him to see. 2 See, e.g., J. Burnet, Plato's Euthyphro, Apology of Socrates, and Crito (Oxford.

Laches' second definition: bravery is endurance [b–d] Laches offers an opinion that courage is "a certain perseverance of the soul". However, Socrates challenges this idea by arguing that there are many instances in battle when the prudent thing to do is to withdraw or flee. Laches E, Mill, Nature, p. 47 “Consistent courage is always the effect of cultivation,” etc., Unity of Plato's Thought, nn. 46 and 2 Phaedo 69 B. 3 νόμιμον of the Mss. yields quite as good a meaning as Stobaeus's μόνιμον.

Plato's "laches" is an investigation into the nature of courage with the intention of demonstrating the difficulty of singling out one virtue, namely courage, and defining it separately from the other cardinal virtues such as bravery, wisdom, justice, temperance, and : /   Laches, the blunt warrior, is of opinion that such an art is not knowledge, and cannot be of any value, because the Lacedaemonians, those great masters of arms, neglect it.

The Laches is a dialogue concerned with the virtue of courage. Throughout the dialogue, two distinguished generals, Nicias and Laches take turns attempting to define the nature of courage while Socrates mediates and responds. And yet, Laches, you must except the Lacedaemonians at Plataea, who, when they came upon the light shields of the Persians, are said not to have been willing to stand and fight, and to have fled; but when the ranks of the Persians were broken, they turned upon them like cavalry, and won the battle of Plataea.

A defendant who invokes the doctrine is asserting that the claimant has delayed in asserting its rights, and, because of this delay, is no longer entitled to bring an equitable claim.

Failure to assert one's rights in a timely manner can result in claims being barred by laches: it is a maxim of equity that, "Equity aids the vigilant, not the negligent.". That the virtues in some sense form a unity was a thesis apparently maintained by the historical Socrates (1). It plays a part in the aporia at the end of the Laches, and is the theme of the major part of the Protagoras.
