The Republic, in the course of its tautly reasoned Socratic dialogues, accomplishes nothing less than an anatomy of the soul and an exhaustive description of a state that both mirrors and enforces the soul's idea of harmony. No other book, except the Bible, has had its formative influence on two thousand years of Western thought. Translated by Benjamin Jowett, complete and unabridged, this is a new quality trade paperback edition, printed on acid-free paper.
