The Republic of Plato

The Republic of Plato

The definitive translation of the most influential text in this history of Western philosophy

Long regarded as the most accurate rendering of Plato’s Republic that has yet been published, this widely acclaimed work is the first strictly literal translation of a timeless classic. In addition to the annotated text, there is also a rich and valuable essay-as well as indices-which will better enable the reader to approach the heart of Plato’s intention.
This edition includes an introduction by acclaimed critic Adam Kirsch, setting the work in its intellectual context for a new generation of readers.
