A series of four talks
1—Introduction by W. K. C. Guthrie
Professor of Ancient Philosophy in the University of Cambridge and Fellow of Peterhouse
Of all philosophers, Plato is the most persistently modern. The Republic is still necessary to students of political theory. It has been equally appropriately described as 'a dramatically disguised essay on the True, the Good, and the Beautiful.' How do such apparently distant themes find place in one coherent work? The talks in this series seek an explanation.
