Summary
This book is a dialogue written by a very superior dramatic artist. The playwright Plato created Socrates, who is the hero of this piece, a character who steps out of this and other dialogues and dominates the world intellectually. The republic or polity that Socrates magically or mythically presents is a utopia--most emphatically. In a profounder sense this book is not a book of politics. The republic is the country of the human mind, and it is on its highways that you meet Plato coming back
