A step by step, passage by passage analysis of the complete Republic.
White shows how the argument of the book is articulated, the important interconnections among its elements, and the coherent and carefully developed train of though which motivates its complex philosophical reasoning.
In his extensive introduction, White describes Plato's aims, introduces the argument, and discusses the major philosophical and ethical theories embodied in the Republic.
He then summarizes each of its ten books and provides substantial explanatory and interpretive notes.
