Plato's Republic, Books Five & Six
The Philosophy Documentation
Center is pleased to offer dramatized, unabridged versions of philosophical
dialogues on audio CD from Agora Publications. In Books Five and Six of
The Republic, the quest for justice that has guided the dialogue
from the beginning now shifts to the search for an even more encompassing
qualitygoodness. But what is the nature of goodness? Can human beings
know it and teach it to others? How can it be manifested in the republic?
To answer such questions requires a genuine lover of wisdom. How can such
people be distinguished from those who simply pretend to know? This dramatized
version is an adaptation of the Benjamin Jowett translation.
Agora Publications specializes in the production of dramatized
philosophical dialogues, which are published in both electronic and
print formats. The text of each dialogue is presented in a new
translation, helping to bring each work to life for students and
non-academic audiences. In the classroom, students have been "extremely
enthusiastic. They seemed to feel it was entirely contemporary." The
recordings have also been popular with non-academics wishing to explore
the basic questions in western philosophy. All of these dialogues are
available to individuals on CD, and institutional licensing of the
entire collection is available.
