    This book is Stanley Rosen's fourth study focusing on a particular Platonic dialogue. It is also by far the best. He has previously published works on Symposium (), Sophist (), and Statesman ().

Socrates - GLAUCON I went down yesterday to the Piraeus with Glaucon the son of Ariston, that I might offer up my prayers to the goddess; and also because I wanted to see in what manner they would celebrate the festival, which was a new thing.

I first started reading “The Republic” and other Plato’s dialogues when I was a teenager. The edition I read was the “Great Dialogues of Plato”, translated by W.H.D. Rouse. The moment I picked up the thick and wordy book, I was hooked.
