Plato's Republic: A Study Guide
Stephan T. Mayo
THE REPUBLIC is universally regarded as one of the most important works of philosophy ever written. The text was written by Plato at the height of his literary and intellectual powers and treats subjects as diverse as politics, aesthetics, ethics, metaphysics, epistemology, human psychology, family life, the role of women in society, educational theory, leadership, and warfare. Some would say that the text is as relevant today as it was in the fifth century B.C. when it was written, providing a unique window into our own political and social lives in the 21st century.
SophiaOmni's study guide to THE REPUBLIC is unique in that it has been designed for the philosophical novice in mind. Assuming no prior knowledge of the discipline of philosophy or Plato's thought, this edition provides the reader with the tools he or she needs to read Plato's work profitably. Each section of the text has been divided topically and provided with clear commentary aimed at illuminating the major themes of the text and their philosophical significance. References at the end of each section of the text provide resources for those seeking to delve further into any of the ideas presented in THE REPUBLIC.
Great ideas endure forever.

Each edition has been carefully edited and introduced by experts in the fields of philosophy, religion, or ethics to provide a helping hand to those who might otherwise be intimidated by the thought of reading great works from the past and set them on their way to a lifelong love affair with the pursuit of wisdom.
