Plato’s The Republic
A paper which shows how Plato’s philosophy is still relevant today.
The paper examines Plato’s philosophical work, “The Republic”. It shows how Plato believed that morality is an entity distinct from the objects and events around us, and that coming to understand the inherent nature of morality will ultimately help us to determine what is moral, what is immoral and what is just. The paper also provides a biography of Plato’s life.
`Throughout the Republic, and his many other writings, Plato raised questions that are still at the heart of many modern conflicts and heated debates. These included such perpetual enigmas as: What is justice? What is goodness? What is morality? What is sin? Plato examined these questions as separate aspects of a single theme. He then used his answers develop his own rendition of the perfect existence.`
