Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The central work of one of the West's greatest philosophers, The Republic of Plato is a masterpiece of insight and feeling, the finest of the Socratic dialogues, and one of the great books of Western culture. This new translation captures the dramatic realism, poetic beauty, intellectual vitality, and emotional power of Plato at the height of his powers. Deftly weaving three main strands of argument into an artistic whole--the ethical and political, the aesthetic and mystical, and the metaphysical--Plato explores in The Republic the elements of the ideal community, where morality can be achieved in a balance of wisdom, courage, and restraint.

Synopsis:

Essentially an inquiry into morality, Plato's "Republic" also contains arguments and insights into many other areas of philosophy. It is also a literary classic. This translation by Robin Waterfield is complemented by full explanatory notes and a critical introduction.
