Description

Plato’s most famous work and the bedrock of Western philosophy

Written in the form of a Socratic dialogue, The Republic is an investigation into the nature of an ideal society. In this far-reaching and profoundly influential treatise, Plato explores the concept of justice, the connection between politics and psychology, the difference between words and what they represent, and the roles of art and education, among many other topics. A towering achievement of philosophical insight, The Republic is as relevant to readers today as it was to the citizens of ancient Athens.

“The safest general characterization of the European philosophical tradition is that it consists of a series of footnotes to Plato.” —Alfred North Whitehead
