Publisher's Summary

The Republic is perhaps the single most important, the most studied and the most quoted text of all of Plato's Socratic Dialogues. Through the medium of Socrates, Plato outlines his view and ideas concerning the ideal working of the city-state.
Socrates narrates a conversation that took place the previous day with Cephalus, Glaucon, Thrasymachus and others. The dialogue is organised into 10 books and covers a broad range of topics, including the ideal community, the ideal rulers of the community - philosophers and the philosopher king - and various forms of government, including timocracy, oligarchy, democracy and tyranny.
Part of the Ukemi recording of the complete Socratic Dialogues by Plato, it uses the classic translation by Benjamin Jowett and is read with authority by David Rintoul.

Essential knowledge

There aren’t many books that it is absolutely essential for every human being to read. This is one of them. If you haven’t read it yet, don’t read anything else until you have. This audiobook version is wonderful. David Rintoul is a masterful narrator, dramatising each of the characters in a way that Plato would thoroughly disapprove of ;-)
