About this product
- DescriptionWhat is at stake is far from insignificant: it is how one should live one's life. Plato's The Republic is widely ackwledged as the cornerstone of Western philosophy. Presented in the form of a dialogue between Socrates and three different interlocutors, it is an inquiry into the tion of a perfect community and the ideal individual within it. During the conversation, other questions are raised: What is goodness? What is reality? What is kwledge? The Republic also addresses the purpose of education and the roles of both women and men as guardians of the people. With remarkable lucidity and deft use of allegory, Plato arrives at a depiction of a state bound by harmony and ruled by philosopher kings.
