Overview

Focus Philosophical Library's edition of Plato's Republic is an English translation of one of the most intellectually important works in Western philosophy and political theory. It includes an extensive introduction, an extensive afterword "Imitation" by John White, a chapter-by-chapter outline of principal speakers and summary of the content, Stephanus numbers, boldface type to indicate the entrance of a new speaker into the discussion, footnotes, and glossary of key terms with cross-references for the text.

This dialogue includes Socrates and others discussing the definition of justice, the theory of forms, and the immortality of the soul. Plato uses numerous dialogues between Socrates and various characters in Athens to discuss the nature of government, including the nature of justice, the happiness of the just and the unjust man, the nature of rule in the ideal city-state, and other matters essential to understanding classical philosophy such as the theory of forms, the immortality of the soul, poetry, and the role of the philosopher in society.

FPL books are distinguished by their commitment to faithful, clear, and consistent translations of texts and the rich world part and parcel of those texts.

It keeps locking me out from all the results

Welcome to the &real epublic! I'm Connor, one of the camp co-leaders. The other leaders are Skylar, Nathan, Wayne and Jack. These are the rules for the camp: <p> 1) Make a bio!: Do this at the res named "The Republic Of Pirates". It moves, so I can't just give you a number. Include: Your name, age, godly parent, gender, looks, powers and weapons. No saying "Secret" or else you can't play War Games. <br> 2) No GodModding!: Everyone hates this. GodModding is when you unfairly do things like use weapons/powers that aren't in your bio, dodge/avoid every attack in a fight, kill in one post, have multiple godly parents, use powers that don't match your gp, or use powers too much without resting. Doing these things will result in being placed on the ban list at res three. <br> 3) No drama!: T.T ugh. Drama is a scourge to the camps. Some drama is nescessary and that is realized. Just don't take it to an extreme. <br> 4) Finally, have fun!: RP is one huge game. Don't be that guy who takes everything too seriously. <p> Any questions? Ask one of the above mentioned leaders! Thank you!

Every American University student should not be able to graduate until having read this book...twice. An excellent guide to living a just life.

In this book, Plato documents a discussion in which several philosophers create and describe their idea of the perfect society. Socrates contributes a lot of the information and makes most of the major points. I didnt agree with all of their ideas or conclusions, but much of what was presented was very thought provoking. I consider the highlight of this book to be the 'simile of the Cave.' I found this to be the most thought provokine part of the book and the part containing the most depth. This simile is the reason I gave this book a 4 star rating. This book is strictly philisophical discussion and analysis. I decided to read this book for the wisdom which was bound to be between the covers. I found a lot which I could relate to my every day life and many things which would be good topics for group discussion. I recomend this book to those who want to think. Negatives of this book include: Has no plot; only discussion. Parts are uninteresting. Some of the reason is difficults to understand. As always, remember that this is only my opinion and you may not feel as I do about this book.
