    DescriptionLong regarded as the most accurate rendering of Platos Republic that has yet been published, this widely acclaimed work is the first strictly literal translation of a timeless classic.

In addition to the corrected text itself there is also a rich and valuable essayas well as indexeswhich will better enable the reader to approach the heart of Platos intention.
