Read for my Philosophy Classics class. An easier philosophical read, the points are easy to see and the points are interesting. :)
This book is about JUSTICE. The definition, how to achieve it, and all things related to it. It's a classic, that should be taught in high schools. A bit of a difficult read at times, but try reading it out of order. For class, we read it much out of sequence (1,2,5,7,9,3,8,11,4,6,10) it made a lot more sence, and left you feeling with the urge to go storm the White House for a reform.
I had to read this for class but I actually enjoyed it. A real classic that everyone should read. Contains the "Allegory of the Cave".
I had to read this in college. I was a little highlighter happy.
Read this for a graduate education course I took. Very useful and Bloom is brilliant tour guide for the hard going Plato.
A 2nd edition of Plato's Republic. Helpful for reading, philosphy, ethics, and discussion.
Great book and breakdown of Platos work.
If you're at all interested in Philosophy... this is the first book you should read.
