Plato’s “The Republic” features Socrates engaging in discussions with Athenians on justice and the ideal state. Socrates argues that true wisdom comes from acknowledging our ignorance, and he proposes that individuals should behave justly for the intrinsic good it brings to the soul. Plato also presents controversial ideas about the treatment of women, children, and property in the ruling middle class of an ideal state, suggesting communal ownership. He further criticizes poetry (art) as deceptive and advocates for the supremacy of philosophy in the pursuit of truth and wisdom.


“The Republic” has had a significant historical influence on world culture, but its ideas are subject to debate and interpretation. It continues to be studied and discussed by philosophers and scholars, presenting thought-provoking concepts on justice, the ideal state, and the role of art in society.

About the Author

Plato was born in one of the wealthiest and politically active families in Athens around 428 BC. He joined the circle surrounding Socrates around the age of twenty and left Athens after Socrates’ execution in 399, travelling to the Mediterranean world—teaching and learning. Plato returned to Athens sometime around 388 BC and established the first institution of higher learning in the Western world—the Academy. He laid the foundations of Western philosophy and science along with his student Aristotle, who was the other exceptional classical philosopher. Proven to be one of the most influential works of political theory and philosophy, the Republic is Plato’s best-known work. Written around 380 BC it is by far the best introduction to his thought and contains many of the most important Platonic doctrines.
