This course is a close reading of one of the most influential and controversial texts in the Western philosophical tradition, Plato's REPUBLIC. The REPUBLIC's concerns are very broad indeed; it addresses itself to the two most fundamental questions: What is the world like? and How should I live? Accordingly, we will study the REPUBLIC from as many points of view as possible, examining it as a work of philosophy, of rhetoric, of literature, of political science, etc.
