Editorial Reviews

"Santas's long career in philosophy and in the classroom hasresulted in a wonderful new reading of Plato's Republic. Theanalysis is close, fresh, and revealing, and at the same timeremarkably concise . . . Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-divisionundergraduates through faculty." (Choice, 1July 2011)

Santas'scritical engagement with the text and emphasis on getting thereader involved in its debates and arguments…is the realstrength of this book.  Someone who reads it will come awaywith an appreciation for the continued relevance and value of thearguments in the Republic, and that is, in my mind,something very good indeed.
