- PLATO'S REPUBLIC - A BIOGRAPHY - Books that shook the World.
DetailsPlato is perhaps the most significant philosopher who ever lived and The Republic, composed in Athens in about 375 BC, is widely regarded as his most famous dialogue. Its discussion of the perfect city--and the perfect mind--laid the foundations for Western culture and has been the cornerstone of Western philosophy. As the distinguished Cambridge professor Simon Blackburn points out, it has probably sustained more commentary, and been subject to more radical and impassioned disagreement, than almost any other text in the modern world.A clear and accessible introduction to philosophys first superstar (Kirkus Reviews), Platos Republic explores the judicial, moral, and political ideas in the Republic with dazzling insight. Blackburn also examines Republics influence and staying power, and shows why, from St. Augustine to twentieth-century philosophers such as Ludwig Wittgenstein, Western thought is still conditioned by this most important, and contemporary, of books.ABOUT THE AUTHOR : Simon Blackburn is Professor of Philosophy at the University of Cambridge. He is the author of Think, Truth and the Oxford Dictionary of Philosophy.
