"A judicious mix of new voices and more familiar ones, Santas' Guide is a terrific resource for students and teachers of Plato's masterwork. It should command a wide readership and be in every library." C. D. C. Reeve, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill This is a splendid collection of essays. The contributors are not content with rehashing old material but demonstrate how it is still possible to engage with the Republic in new and philosophically stimulating ways. It provides a first-rate guide both to the Republic itself and to some of the most exciting developments in its interpretation. R F Stalley, University of Glasgow "This is a valuable collection. We should be grateful to Gerasimos Santas, and to each of the contributors to this volume, for the new light they have shed on Plato's masterpiece." Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
