We read and discuss Robin Waterfield’s translation of Plato’s Republic (OUP £7.99). Waterfield interprets a crucial Greek word in its widest sense and regards the book as a treatise on ‘morality’, not more narrowly ‘justice’. Republic, then, is Plato’s wide-ranging attempt to define how an individual can live the good life, and to demonstrate that one gains in happiness by being moral, whether or not being moral brings any other advantages.
3rd Tuesday each month, 10.15-12.45, Raynes Park.
