TL;DR: Ferrara as mentioned in this paper examines the personalities and social status of the brothers Glaucon and Adeimantus, Plato's notion of justice, coherence in Plato's description of the decline of states, and the tyrant and the philosopher king -a pair who, in their different ways, break with the terms of the city-soul analogy.
Abstract: Tracing a central theme of Plato's Republic, G. R. F. Ferrari reconsiders in this study the nature and purpose of the comparison between the structure of society and that of the individual soul. In four chapters, Ferrari examines the personalities and social status of the brothers Glaucon and Adeimantus, Plato's notion of justice, coherence in Plato's description of the decline of states, and the tyrant and the philosopher king - a pair who, in their different ways, break with the terms of the city-soul analogy. In addition to acknowledging familiar themes in the interpretation of the Republic - the sincerity of its utopianism, the justice of the philosopher's return to the Cave - Ferrari provocatively engages secondary literature by Leo Strauss, Bernard Williams, and Jonathan Lear. With admirable clarity and insight, Ferrari conveys the relation between the city and the soul and the choice between tyranny and philosophy. "City and Soul in Plato's Republic" will be of value to students of classics, philosophy, and political theory alike.

TL;DR: In the first few slides of my talk at Mariofest, I had compared Mario, in his capacity of an inspiring mentor and a chief architect, in building up an eminent school of theoretical physics and astrophysics in Argentina, to my own Ph.D. advisor, the late Professor John Archibald Wheeler, in the USA.
Abstract: Happy Birthday Mario, the philosopher, the king and the philosopher king! — This was explained in the first few slides of my talk at Mariofest. In an earlier, different occasion I had compared Mario, in his capacity of an inspiring mentor and a chief architect, in building up an eminent school of theoretical physics and astrophysics in Argentina, to my own Ph.D. advisor, the late Professor John Archibald Wheeler, in the USA. The nature of this meeting could perhaps allow me to also relate some of my past experience with Wheeler, and to pay homage to his influence on me in the same capacity as is done here by many young researchers, leaders in their own rights in different fields of physics and astrophysics, with Mario. So please forgive me if you find me delving at times into the past, referring to what I was thinking when I was a graduate student, some 40 years ago, on certain topics, some still of current interest. One of these ideas bears on the present theme of gravity in relation to thermodynamics, another on the philosophy I use for understanding it.
