The Republic of Plato is considered an integral part of the utopian literary genre. The book is divided into 10 books: the first deals with the subject of justice; in the next two books Plato expounds his theory of the “ideal state”; the fourth and fifth books deal with the relationship between things and ideas, between the sensitive and supersensitive world (hyperuranion); books six and seven describe the theory of knowledge; the eighth and ninth books talk about the state and the family; and the last book examines the idea of the immortality of the soul with the Myth of Er.
The central theme of the book is justice, argued with the help of several Platonic theories, including the allegorical myth of the cave, the doctrine of ideas, dialectics, the theory of the soul and the project of an ideal city. A book of moral philosophy, in which the real questions are how to live best, and what is the best order or organization of human society.
The Republic is considered by many academics to be the greatest philosophical text ever written, being the most studied book in top universities.
