Blair's new translation of Plato's Republic is more readable and accessible than any translation on the market. Blair makes a persuasive case for using "honesty" rather than "morality" when translating a key Greek term. In this sense, the book is a radical departure from much of Plato scholarship. The author argues that the book is first and foremost an ethical treatise investigating the question of whether honesty is the best policy or not, and only secondarily a political treatise. Includes an introduction to the translation and an overview of the book to guide readers new to Plato.
