Description
Plato is arguably the most significant philosopher who has ever lived, and Republic, composed in Athens in about 375 BC, is his most famous dialogue. Its discussion of the perfect city—and the perfect mind—has been a cornerstone for Western culture and philosophy. In this book Simon Blackburn explains the judicial, moral, and political ideas in the Republic and examines its influence on the modern world. He shows why, from St. Augustine to 20th-century philosophers like Whitehead and Bergson, Western thought is still conditioned by this founding work.
