Review quote

""As an introduction, this book clearly addresses readers new to philosophical classics.... However, it could also be useful for 'continental' scholars who are not really working on Plato but must teach the Republic in their courses, as it provides a short but good overview of recent interpretations of the dialogue in English speaking areas."" --Diego De Brasi, Otto-Friedrich-Universitat Bamberg, BRYN MAWR CLASSICAL REVIEW, 2010--Diego De Brasi, Otto-Friedrich-Universitat Bamberg""BRYN MAWR CLASSICAL REVIEW"" (01/01/2010)
