DESCRIPTION
This Routledge Philosophy GuideBook introduces one of the greatest works of Western thought, Plato's Republic. The Republic is the most studied work of philosophy and is a key work in introductory philosophy, ancient philosophy and political theory courses. Indeed, the influence of the arguments and positions that Plato puts forward in the Republic are found in nearly every subject and make a familiarity with the text essential for all students. Nikholas Pappas' approach allows the student to grasp the overall argument of the Republic as well as the individual arguments Plato uses to sustain that argument. Plato's life and the republic are placed in their historical and philosophical context. Pappas combines an elucidation of Plato's reasoning with a critical commentary on his doctrines. He is able to examine in detail Plato's distinct and lasting philosophical contributions, notably concerning the nature of justice, the difference between knowledge and opinion, and the dangers of poetry. Plato and the Republic is ideal for students coming to philosophy or politics for the first time. The profound influence of the Republic across the history of ideas cannot be overstated; with the guidance of this book, the student will have a distinct advantage in their subsequent studies.
