Because Socrates didn?t write any of the dialogues that have made him famous, scholars are always wary that the views presented by ?Socrates? are in reality those of the work?s actual author. While scholars continue to debate what Socrates himself believed, Plato?s Republic has been hugely influential in philosophic and political thought for more than two thousand years. Several concepts and passages?such as the metaphor of the ?ship of state,? the story of the Ring of Gyges, and the Allegory of the Cave?have shown up in the works of Shakespeare, J.R.R. Tolkien and even the Matrix films. The ?ideal? republic presented in this work might strike some as despotic, perhaps even totalitarian, but Plato was a harsh critic of democracy after the democratic ...

The Republic Book Description :

THE Republic of Plato is the longest of his works with the exception of the Laws, and is certainly the greatest of them. There are nearer approaches to modern metaphysics in the Philebus and in the Sophist; the Politicus or Statesman is more ideal; the form and institutions of the State are more clearly drawn out in the Laws; as works of art, the Symposium and the Protagoras are of higher excellence. But no other Dialogue of Plato has the same largeness of view and the same perfection of style; no other shows an equal knowledge of the world, or contains more of those thoughts which are new as well as old, and not of one age only but of all. Nowhere in Plato is there a deeper irony or a greater wealth of humour or imagery, or more dramatic power. Nor ...

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.
