The Republic is a dialogue of political philosophy written by Plato, being the best known work of this Greek author, and published around the year 370 a. C. According to Cicero, Plato's Republic is the first book of Greek philosophy.
It is a dialogue between Socrates and other characters, such as the disciples or relatives of Socrates himself. The work is made up of ten books, and brings together all the ideas that make up Plato's philosophy.
The main theme of the book is justice, but reference is also made to fundamental Platonic doctrines, such as the allegory of the cave, the doctrine of ideas or forms, the conception of philosophy as a dialectic or the project of an ideal city, governed according to philosophical principles.
In short, The Republic deals with all issues related to the "philosophy of human things", and involves topics such as ontology, epistemology, political philosophy and ethics.
For this digital edition of the book The Republice we have used the Benjamin Jowett's Translation.
