《理想国》一书是柏拉图的一篇重要对话录,对话录里柏拉图以苏格拉底之口通过与其他人对话的方式设计了一个真、善、美相统一的政体,即可以达到公正的理想国。柏拉图的理想国是人类历史上最早的乌托邦。在他的理想国里统治者必须是哲学家,他认为现存的政治都是坏的,人类的真正出路在于哲学家掌握政权,也只有真正的哲学家才能拯救当时城邦所处的危机。这种信念构成了柏拉图成熟的政治哲学体系的核心。在他的眼里“哲学家”有着特殊的内涵。他认为哲学家是最高尚、最有学识的人,而这种贤人统治下的贤人政体就是最好的政体。所以,只有建立以哲学家为国王的国家才是最理想的国家。这个国家就是存在于天上的模范国家。

柏拉图把国家分为三个阶层:受过严格哲学教育的统治阶层、保卫国家的武士阶层、平民阶层。他鄙视个人幸福,无限地强调城邦整体、强调他一己以为的“正义”。在柏拉图眼中,第三阶层的人民是低下的,可以欺骗的。他赋予了统治者无上的权力,甚至统治者“为了国家利益可以用撒谎来对付敌人或者公民”。

The Republic (Greek: Πολιτεία, Politeia; Latin: De Republica) is a Socratic dialogue, written by Plato around 380 BC, concerning the definition of justice (δικαιοσύνη), the order and character of the just city-state and the just man—for this reason, ancient readers used the name On Justice as an alternative title (not to be confused with the spurious dialogue also titled On Justice). The dramatic date of the dialogue has been much debated and though it might have taken place some time during the Peloponnesian War, "there would be jarring anachronisms if any of the candidate specific dates between 432 and 404 were assigned". It is Plato's best-known work and has proven to be one of the most intellectually and historically influential works of philosophy and political theory. In it, Socrates along with various Athenians and foreigners discuss the meaning of justice and examine whether or not the just man is happier than the unjust man by considering a series of different cities coming into existence "in speech", culminating in a city called Kallipolis (Καλλίπολις), which is ruled by philosopher-kings; and by examining the nature of existing regimes. The participants also discuss the theory of forms, the immortality of the soul, and the roles of the philosopher and of poetry in society.

本书是西方政治思想传统的最具代表性的作品,是西方第一部系统论述乌托邦思想的著作,奠定了西方正义学说的基础。本书通过苏格拉底与他人的对话,给后人展现了一个完美优越的城邦。这部“哲学大全”不仅是柏拉图对自己此前哲学思想的概括和总结,而且是当时各门学科的综合,它探讨了哲学、政治、伦理道德、教育、文艺等各方面的问题,以理念论为基础,建立了一个系统的理想国家方案。

柏拉图(Plato,约公元前427年-公元前347年),古希腊伟大的哲学家,也是全部西方哲学乃至整个西方文化最伟大的哲学家和思想家之一,他和老师苏格拉底,学生亚里士多德并称为希腊三大哲学家。另有其创造或发展的概念包括:柏拉图思想、柏拉图主义、柏拉图式爱情、经济学图表等。柏拉图也记录了苏格拉底的一些话,为苏格拉底的名言,警示后人。柏拉图才思敏捷,研究广泛,著述颇丰。以他的名义流传下来的著作有40多篇,另有13封书信。柏拉图的著作大多是用对话体裁写成的,人物性格鲜明,场景生动有趣,语言优美华丽,论证严密细致,内容丰富深刻。达到了哲学与文学、逻辑与修辞的高度统一,不仅在哲学上而且在文学上亦具有极其重要的意义和价值。

Plato ( 428/427 or 424/423 – 348/347 BCE) was a philosopher, as well as mathematician, in Classical Greece. He is considered an essential figure in the development of philosophy, especially the Western tradition, and he founded the Academy in Athens, the first institution of higher learning in the Western world. Along with Socrates and his most famous student, Aristotle, Plato laid the foundations of Western philosophy and science. Alfred North Whitehead once noted: "the safest general characterization of the European philosophical tradition is that it consists of a series of footnotes to Plato."

    教育的基本原理在于,使人们在孩提时代就建立起良好的思维体系。教育无需强迫,也不能强迫,更无法强迫。任何填鸭式的教育方式只会让人们头脑空空、一无所获。只有在早期教育中融入寓教于乐的成分,我们才能更快地发现孩子的兴趣所在。展开↓
