Theory of the Good

Form of the Good is the higest good and illuminates all the other forms.
It is the only source of true knowledge and all the other forms are under a heirarchy to it
It is Plato's representation of a godly figure and can be likened, in amny sense, to the Classical God of Theism
We, according to Plato, understand our concept of morality and goodness from our knowledge of the form of the good.
The Form of the Good is the highest form from which we understand the other forms.

Thats an outline
