How to Survive the Dilemma
This chapter discusses the advice that a student of philosophy should give to a commander in Agamemnon's position. This entails telling Agamemnon that his army should have had someone with the wisdom needed to sustain it as an effective team, along with the leadership qualities to communicate that wisdom and apply it to the case. This wisdom was justice. When the army was in danger of becoming unraveled, Odysseus possessed the wisdom as well as compassion to convince angry troops to return to camp with a sense in their hearts that justice had prevailed. The army then went back to work and won the war.
