Plato's "Republic" Summary

Plato's "Republic": An Edinburgh Philosophical Guide by Darren Sheppard

Everything you need to know about Plato's Republic in one volume. No text in the history of western philosophy has been given more attention than Plato's Republic. This book will introduce students to the dialogue and facilitate the reader's own response to it, without providing an interpretation or a response on the reader's behalf. Designed to be read alongside Plato's text, this approach will be helpful for students and lecturers alike.

Plato's "Republic" Reviews

Sheppard tries to offer his readers a truly introductory guide to the Republic, i. e., a guide whose author has made as few interpretative decisions as possible in order to encourage new readers to have a personal conversation with Plato's text... In my opinion, Sheppard fulfils his purpose very well. As an introduction, this book clearly addresses readers new to philosophical classics and has consequently a very simple structure: it takes them through the text step-by-step... 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
