Translated by Benjamin Jowett (1817-1893). The Layout is +30 % larger as the original. The Republic is Plato's best-kwn work, it has proven to be one of the world's most influential works of philosophy and political theory, both intellectually and historically. In it, Socrates along with various Athenians and foreigners discuss the meaning of justice and examine whether or t the just man is happier than the unjust man by considering a series of different cities coming into existence in speech, culminating in a city called Kallipolis, which is ruled by philosopher-kings; and by examining the nature of existing regimes. The participants also discuss the theory of forms, the immortality of the soul, and the roles of the philosopher and of poetry in society.
- Author BiographyPlato/Platon (born 428/427 or 424/423, died 348/347 BC). He was a philosopher in Classical Greece and the founder of the Academy in Athens, the first institution of higher learning in the Western world. He is widely considered the most pivotal figure in the development of philosophy, especially the Western tradition. Unlike nearly all of his philosophical contemporaries, Plato's entire uvre is believed to have survived intact for over 2,400 years. Benjamin Jowett (born April 15, 1817, died October 1, 1893) was renowned as an influential tutor and administrative reformer in the University of Oxford, a theologian and translator of Plato and Thucydides. He was Master of Balliol College, Oxford.
