Plato's Republic concerns righteousness both in individuals and in communities, and proposes an ideal state organized and governed on philosophical principles. This edition, which replaces Shorey's, offers text, translation, and annotation that are fully current with modern scholarship. The Loeb Classical Library edition of Plato is in 12 volumes.
