The Republic

Gelesen von LibriVox Volunteers

(4,334 Sterne; 280 Bewertungen)

The Republic is a Socratic dialogue by Plato, written in approximately 380 BC. It is one of the most influential works of philosophy and political theory, and arguably Plato's best known work. In it, Socrates and various other Athenians and foreigners discuss the meaning of justice and whether the just man is happier than the unjust man by constructing an imaginary city ruled by philosopher-kings. The dialogue also discusses the nature of the philosopher, Plato's Theory of Forms, the conflict between philosophy and poetry, and the immortality of the soul.

Fantastic Book.

(4 Sterne)

I wish it was read by only one person though. It was hit or miss for readers, but most of them were good.

(3,5 Sterne)

This book is a gift to the listner. At times I was a challenge to catch the reading style but well worth the effort. if it had not been for the Liber vox recording this great book would still be on my to read list. The author opened my mind to understand my philosophical nature and the influence his thinking has on New Testament doctrine. I am better for having endured to the end of this great literary work. Keep Going

Truly great part of the Western tradition

(4,5 Sterne)

Still of enormous value after all these centuries. The content is five star. The reading and translation three and four.

(4,5 Sterne)

Very Inspirational book. Interesting analysis of virtue and how to live. With the added (and extremely perceptive) critique of the pro.'s and con's of the various ways of organising a society.

book 2 part 2 is very hard to understand

(1,5 Sterne)

The first portion of the book was read adequately, but unfortunately I had a lot of trouble understanding the reader at the start of book 2 part 2 and had to look for another version.

ok I suppose

(3,5 Sterne)

The text is interesting and worth a listen, but some speakers are more intelligible than others.

more relevant than ever, a great listen during corona panic time

Socrates vs. Everyone

(4,5 Sterne)

WARNING!!! If you aren’t interested in people from 2,000 years ago arguing with other people from 2,000 years ago, do not listen to this book. If you are interested, by all means, go ahead! Read pretty well, Plato has written up a very intriguing set of discussions. The way Socrates gets his point around is very fun to listen to… Just don’t expect an action-packed thriller! Probably best for ages 18+ because of its complexity.
