Book Review:Greek Classics:The Republic by Plato
Recommended Age: Middle school, High School, Young Adult and Adult
After reading the dialogues of Plato I finally mustered courage to read the Republic. Without a doubt it was one of the most rewarding books I’ve ever read. A beautiful book that has inspired philosophy and thought process, I cannot recommend this book enough.
It talks on an ideal man, society, leadership, citizen and the very famous theory of forms. An absolutely insightful and wonderful book to understand western civilization ,thought process and the success and making of the west.
It was interesting to read ancient wisdom and realise how much has been passed on from century to century.
If you are intimidated by Plato I highly encourage the reading of Apology by Plato. Review for Plato’s dialogue
