A Guide to Plato's Republic

Synopsis

This book provides an integral but an intellectually accessible interpretation of the Republic for readers who lack prior preparation in philosophy or political theory. The author contrasts Plato's responses to perennial issues with those of key subsequent thinkers and introduces readers to some of the technical terminology in which philosophy and political theory are still conducted. The book will provoke lively discussion in any course that assigns the Republic as a primary text.
