Description

The Republic

by Plato

The Republic is a Socratic dialogue by Plato, written in approximately 380 BC. It is one of the most influential works of philosophy and political theory, and Plato's best known work. In Plato's fictional dialogues the characters of Socrates as well as various Athenians and foreigners discuss the meaning of justice and examine whether the just man is happier than the unjust man by imagining a society ruled by philosopher-kings and the guardians. The dialogue also discusses the role of the philosopher, Plato's Theory of Forms, the place of poetry, and the immortality of the soul.

About Plato:

Plato (Greek: Plátōn, "wide, broad-shouldered") (428/427 BC –348/347 BC) was an ancient Greek philosopher, the second of thegreat trio of ancient Greeks –Socrates, Plato, originally namedAristocles, and Aristotle– who between them laid the philosophicalfoundations of Western culture. Plato was also a mathematician, writer of philosophical dialogues, and founder of the Academy inAthens, the first institution of higher learning in the westernworld. Plato is widely believed to have been a student of Socratesand to have been deeply influenced by his teacher's unjust death.Plato's brilliance as a writer and thinker can be witnessed byreading his Socratic dialogues. Some of the dialogues, letters, andother works that are ascribed to him are considered spurious. Platois thought to have lectured at the Academy, although thepedagogical function of his dialogues, if any, is not known withcertainty. They have historically been used to teach philosophy, logic, rhetoric, mathematics, and other subjects about which hewrote.
