The Republic


Available in PDF, epub, and Kindle ebook. This book has 587 pages in the PDF version. This translation by Benjamin Jowett was originally published in 1871.


The Republic is a Socratic dialogue, written by Plato around 380 BC, concerning the definition of justice, the order and character of the just city-state and the just man. It is Plato's best-known work and has proven to be one of the most intellectually and historically influential works of philosophy and political theory. In it, Socrates along with various Athenians and foreigners discuss the meaning of justice and examine whether or not the just man is happier than the unjust man.
