Description

Designed for courses in the history of philosophy, social and political theory, government, and Plato specifically, Plato's Republic: Critical Essays will enrich students' understanding of this profoundly influential work. The comprehensive collection covers Plato's social and political thought, his metaphysics and epistemology, his ethical theory, and his attitude towards women. The essays, chosen for their clarity and ability to stimulate student discussion, are related to one another in ways that will help students see the connections among the various strands of Plato's thought. The book includes an index of passages to guide students through parts of the Republic that they find challenging.--Stephen Halliwell

Review quote

The spread of topics is wide, reasonably balanced. . . . The book will serve well as a set of secondary readings to accompany an advanced course on the Republic. . . . This is a useful collection which will certainly find its way onto many bibliographies....--Stephen Halliwell This is an interesting and valuable collection, which will be extremely useful in many courses dealing with Plato and the issues that he treats.....--Nicholas White This is an interesting and well-balanced collection. . . . There is a fine balance between earlier, well established pieces, and recent material. I am delighted that such a volume is now available.....--Julius M. Moravcsik
