The Republic of Plato is the longest of his works with the exception of the Laws, and is certainly the greatest of them. There are nearer approaches to modern metaphysics in the Philebus and in the Sophist; the Politicus or Statesman is more ideal; the form and institutions of the State are more clearly drawn out in the Laws; as works of art, the Symposium and the Protagoras are of higher excellence. The Republic is the centre around which the other Di-alogues may be grouped; here philosophy reaches the highest point (cp, especi-ally in Books V, VI, VII) to which ancient thinkers ever attained.

Plato's Cosmology continues to be the constant reference point of any serious study of the Timaeus. Before reading this you should have read the Republic and know some classical Greek natural philosophy, mathematics, and astronomy

Essestially an inquiry into morality, the Republic is the central work of the Western world's most famous philosopher. Containing 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 ordinary readers, who are carried along by the wit and intensity of the dialogue and by Plato's unforgettable images of the human condition. This new, lucid translation is complemented by full explanatory notes and an up-to-date critical introduction.

I'm trying to alternate between fun audiobooks and ones that I feel I should read rather than having any desire to do so. Plato's Republic was in that second group. I honestly expected to hate it. But it's one of the fundamental classics. So on the list it goes to listen to while I commute. And I loved it. It may have been that it was a full cast audio but it honestly did feel like being with a group. Maybe a quarter of the way in I realized what it reminded me of: when you are at a very mellow party in college and people start discussing things that are really "deep, man." And there's that one person who is way too into it and dominates the conversation. So that tickled me most of the book. The other thing that was really engaging was how much of the ideas in this book can be seen in the modern world. In that way it made it feel like an anthropological study and it kept making me say, "neat," even when I disagreed with whatever point was being made. Overall I would recommend this audiobook version because it made it come alive.

Whew, that was an intense read! I gave five stars because after careful consideration I realized that Alan Blooms interpretive essay really helped me to understand the The Republic to a different degree. The first ten books are the shoes, the interpretive essay is the shoe lace and it ties all of it up very neatly. To read something over 2,000 years old that’s been translated from Ancient Greek is a task in itself, I commend this translations interpreter he did a stellar job. This book is Heavy and not a book you can just pick up and expect to read in a weekend, its not littered with images that create a perfect picture for you to burn thru, it’s page after page after page of thought, so it slows you down, a lot. Each page forces you to think about what you’re reading, sometimes you have ZERO Idea and that’s ok, that’s where Bloom’s Interpretive Essay comes in. To pick up this book and commit to finishing it is a Challenge I highly recommend, you’ll walk away a better person with a sense of accomplishment and more thoughtful mind. I’ve read over 200 books and I think it’s safe to say that this was the most challenging book I’ve ever put my mind too, if your looking for a challenge then you’ve found it. Happy reading ????

After making the all too common mistake of trying to read Plato in the Jowett translation, I came to Focus' edition of Timaeus. Pleased by what I found, I decided to try their Republic in the hopes that the spirit, if not the editor/translator, would be the same. I wasn't disappointed. Sachs has a light and honest touch discussing Plato and Socrates and he is open about the biases he brings to presenting the Republic and where you might agree with someone else who has different biases. The result of his essential introduction is that you can go into the text with some important things to think about and watch for and, for that matter, and idea just what is going on when it starts with several pages of Socrates recounting a conversation as though he, and not Plato, were the author of the dialogue playing out.

As for Sachs' translation, it is clear and readable. It's a bit odd in places, since the way Plato lays out verbal jousting isn't quite the same as what we might do today. But the language itself is clear, current and neutral enough idiomatically that it won't be out of date in a few years. Great if you are looking for a presentation that will let you actually understand what the Republic is all about with a minimum of fuss.

Plato’s Republic (Greek: Πολιτεία, Politeia; Latin: Res Publica) was written in 380 BC and this version was translated by Benjamin Jowett in 1871. It is a fiction book in the format of a discussion between Socrates and others. It aims to debate and conclusively determine the meaning of Justice. Socrates, the main character, was a Greek philosopher and the mentor of Plato. His philosophy is the basis and origin of the western philosophy. As a high schooler who often debates similar ideals and questions, I found this book to be very eye-opening and fascinating. Socrates doctrine proves itself true even in this day in age. That just goes to show, when it comes to ideals and behavior, humans haven’t changed very much. Republic is very well written and even after thousands of years it still captures its audience with its provoking revelations and relatable content. If you often find yourself debating similar questions then you might just find your answers here, but if you dislike philosophy or are set in your ways you probably will not find this book to be interesting. For me, this book was an enjoyable challenge and I definitely would read it again.

This Kindle edition is not as advertised and entirely useless. First and foremost, it is absolutely not an annotated edition; there is not a single note anywhere in the text. For that matter, there are no Stephanus numbers—the universal page numbers for all editions of Plato—so you will never be able to either cite this edition or find anything referred to by other writers. I'm not even sure that this is the Reeves/Grube translation, as there is no publication information whatsoever. Avoid this like the Athenian plague.

The physical quality of this book (cover, paper, text, etc) is just fine, but this is yet another edition of the Jowett translation of the Republic, which is now in the public domain. If that's what you're looking for, this is fine I guess, but there are newer and arguably better translations for about the same money (The Reeve translation particularly comes to mind), and there are readers with more of the dialogues than just the Republic in them (all Jowett translations) for about the same money as well.

Absolute classic, one dollar for the kindle version?? Fantastic. There are many classics that should be in EVERY library, this is one.
