An accessible, authoritative and timely introduction to Plato's Republic for adult readers.
Part of the new Ladybird Expert series, Plato's Republic is an accessible, authoritative, and timely introduction to the influential dialogue that helped shape all Western literature and philosophy.
Written by distinguished philosopher and professor Angie Hobbs, Plato's Republic explores the age old dilemma: Why should I be just? What is a just society, and how can it be created?
With strikingly relevant questions such as: How can women's potential be actualized? How are democracies subverted by demagogues and tyrants? How dangerous are 'alternative facts' and what can we do about them? This text is still essential reading.
"The artwork is gloriously retro, echoing the original Ladybird house style but containing completely up to date information."
