Product Description

Review

"[Griffith's] aim was to traslate the Greek text as if it were a conversation, and he has succeeded admirably." Library Journal

"In addition to a vivid, dignified and accurate rendition of Plato's text, the student and general reader will find many aids to comprehension in this volume: an introduction that assesses the cultural background to the Republic, its place within political philosophy, and its general argument; succinct notes in the body of the text; an analytical summary of the work's content; a full glossary of proper names; a chronology of important events; and a guide to further reading. The result is an accomplished and accessible edition of this seminal work, suitable for philosophers and classicists as well as historians of political thought at all levels." African Sun Times Review of Books --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Book Description

The late James Adam's edition of The Republic of Plato was published in 1902 and remains the most detailed and valuable critical edition available. D. A. Rees has written an introduction of 15,000 words for this edition. In it, he surveys Adam's work on the textual problems, language and meaning of The Republic. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: Hardcover
In The Republic, Plato defines the basic structure of his ideal state, analysing it in some detail. [For more detail look to The Laws as a follow on]. But the work is not just about the external world. The famous cave analogy, is a strong visual metaphor for personal growth, and if you can conceptualise and internalise this work, it is a life changer!
