Samenvatting

Plato, often cited as a founding father of Western philosophy, set out ideas in the Republic regarding the nature of justice, order, and the character of the just individual, that endure into the modern day. The Routledge Guidebook to Plato’s Republic introduces the major themes in Plato’s great book and acts as a companion for reading the work, examining:

-The context of Plato’s work and the background to his writing
-Each separate part of the text in relation to its goals, meanings and impact
-The reception the book received when first seen by the world
-The relevance of Plato’s work to modern philosophy, its legacy and influence.

With further reading included throughout, this text follows Plato’s original work closely, making it essential reading for all students of philosophy, and all those wishing to get to grips with this classic work.
