Republic is the central work of the Western world's most famous philosopher. Essentially an inquiry into morality, Republic also contains crucial arguments and insights into many other areas of philosophy. It is also a literary masterpiece: the philosophy is presented for the most part for the ordinary reader, who is carried along by the wit and intensity of the dialogue and by Plato's unforgettable images of the human condition.

This new, lucid translation by Robin Waterfield is complemented by full explanatory notes and an up-to-date critical introduction.

“Thought Provoking Read.”

What I really love about Plato’s work is the fact that it is written as a dialect rather than in the way that other philosophers approach their work. Through being written as a dialect Plato’s work is much easier to... More

“Plato's Republic - Waterfield translation”

This book is an excellent translation of Plato's Republic, but readers should still check some of the translation against the actual ancient Greek terminology used. Waterfield translates dikaiosune as morality,... More
