Join Dr. Chip Bennett and Dr. Warren Gage as they explore Plato’s Republic. Beginning with an introduction to Greek philosophy and literature, they lay a strong foundation for ideas and categories that will help you better read the works of Plato. They then examine Plato’s Republic, introducing each of its ten books and tracing the ideas and themes found within them.
