Reconstruct Thrasymachus’ argument from Book I of the Republic for the conclusio

Reconstruct Thrasymachus’ argument from Book I of the Republic for the conclusion that justice is what is to the advantage of the stronger. Present the best objection to this argument. Present Thrasymachus’ best response to this objection. Settle the debate.
Your papers will have exactly four sections, which should be as follows.
1. You present a single argument from the readings. You make clear what is a premise in that argument, what is its conclusion, and what the form of the argument is.
2. You present what you take to be the best objection to a single premise of the argument you presented in the first section. You make this objection as clear and compelling as possible by stating your reasons for taking it to be true.
3. You present the best response that the philosopher at hand can give, consistent with whatever else he or she says, to the objection that you presented in the second section.
4. You adjudicate the debate presented in the first three sections. You give new reasons for thinking that either your objection, or the response of the philosopher, is correct.
Your paper will be evaluated on its effectiveness in presenting a clear, compelling, and philosophically interesting dialectic of argument, objection, response, and adjudication.
