This paper tries to show that, for Plato, man is unhappy «in many ways». Applying the model of multifocal approach also to one of the essential problems both of philosophy and of human existence, the paper crosses the multiple reasons of unhappiness. Unhappiness, in fact, can derive, for instance, from a life without a target to aim for, from a life suffering and crushed by pain, from lack of self control. More generally, furthermore, unhappiness can come from lack of measure, and can be the result of a vicious life. Unlike virtue, in fact, merely described as that which lends measure and order to all beings, making them good, vice denounces an incorrect working and is the principle of excess the foundation of disorder and disharmony of life, i.e. of unhappiness.
