The classic translation of the cornerstone work of western philosophy Plato's Republic is widely acknowledged as one of the most influential works in the history of philosophy. Presented in the form of a dialogue between Socrates and three different interlocutors, it is an inquiry into the notion 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 knowledge; what is the purpose of education? With remarkable lucidity and deft use of allegory, Plato arrives at a depiction of a state bound by harmony and ruled by 'philosopher kings'. Translated by DESMOND LEE with an Introduction by MELISSA LANE

An enquiry into the nature of the ideal society, Republic is a series of dialogues between Socrates and various interrogators. It proposes a state organized and governed on philosophical principles and asks if goodness can exist - devoid of motive, obligation or supplication to a stronger power - solely by itself and translate into society as a whole. The work also contemplates the duality inherent in life: the reality we perceive through our senses and the truth we can gain through the world of ideas. Although Plato is largely concerned with the definition of justice, the city-state and the just man, he also discusses a range of topics: social, moral, educational and psychological. Considered to be one of the bedrocks of Greek philosophy, Republic has had immeasurable impact on Western thought through the ages.

Plato's most famous work and one of the most important books ever written on the subject of philosophy and political theory, "The Republic" is a fictional dialogue between Socrates and other various Athenians and foreigners which examines the meaning of justice. It is primarily from the writings of Plato that Socrates's ideas are passed down to us. Written around 380 BC, the work is an important contribution to the age old question of how to best structure a society in a just way. The influence of the analysis contained within it on the development of government and law in Western civilization cannot be overstated. "The Republic" also discusses Plato's "Theory of Forms", the nature of the philosopher, the conflict between philosophy and poetry, and the immortality of the soul. An essential read for any student of philosophy or political science, "The Republic" is a monumental work of classical antiquity, which forms the foundation for much of our modern public policy. This edition is printed on premium acid-free paper, follows the translation of Benjamin Jowett, and includes an introduction by Alexander Kerr.

The Greek philosopher Plato was born in Athens in 428 B.C. He created dramatic dialogues, probably intended for oral performance, but seldom presented in that format until Agora Publications launched this series of dramatizations in 1994. The Republic explores most of the fundamental questions of philosophy, beginning with a search for how to define justice, moving to a quest for a model of the best possible human community, and concluding with reflections on the immortality of the soul.
