人类历史上最早的乌托邦;位居欧美高校学生必读书目第二的读物。

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."
