20 editions published between 1888 and 2010 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is Thomas Taylor's adept translation of Plato's Republic. Plato's crowning achievement of art and philosophy. The idea that runs through the Republic is that the individual presents almost the same features and qualties as society, on a smaller scale, and in his argument Plato first considers the state and thence makes his deductions as to the individual. Besides the enduring value of the Republic as a work of art, its philosophical and ethical teaching is of particular interest in the present disordered condition of social and speculative ideas."--Publisher's blurb
