The Republic of Plato, Plato
VENDOR: Basic Books
Long regarded as the most accurate rendering of Plato’s Republic that has yet been published, this widely acclaimed work is the first strictly literal translation of a timeless classic. In addition to the annotated text, there is also a rich and valuable essay—as well as indices—which will better enable the reader to approach the heart of Plato’s intention.
This new edition includes a new introduction by acclaimed critic Adam Kirsch, setting the work in its intellectual context for a new generation of readers.
This book is paperback and is recommended reading for Hillsdale's free online course, "Introduction to Western Philosophy"
"The best available English translation....It compels intelligent readers to come to grips with what Plato actually wrote."—American Political Science Review
