PLATO | The REPUBLIC | Important Sources

The subjects

The research that I have conducted for my book Plato’s Visual Utopia, revealed an enormous amount of articles and writings about Plato and the Republic. I include here links to articles of interest in Plato and his famed dialogue. I have included only links to sources that deal, in my view, with the most important subjects of Plato’s dialogue. In particular, I make reference to the following subjects: Justice, State, Individual, Education, Virtues and Art.
