Although justice is one of the central concepts of Gilgamesh, one of the oldest known written sources, there is no definition of justice on which all people agree. However, in order to reach the truth of any concept, not everyone has to agree on a certain definition of the concept. Perhaps it may have been stated centuries ago what the true nature of justice was. If so, where should we look for the true definition of justice: in scriptures, myths, literary works, or works of philosophers? In our study, we will discuss the theses of some philosophers who have tried to examine what the true nature of justice is. Plato comes first among those who reason about what justice is. We will try to examine the path Plato followed in order to reach the meaning of justice and the validity of this path today. The aim of our study is to remind Plato's definition of justice, to show its validity and whether the concept of justice has been addressed in his academy today. Our study shows which aspects of the concept of justice have been “beclouded” after Machiavelli. This will contribute to the lack of research examining the philosophical adventure of the concept of justice. In this analysis, we have reached the thesis that the horizon of truth indicated by the definition of Plato’s concept of justice has aspects that cannot be beclouded and we have been reconsidered.
