The Statesman (Texts in the History of Political Thought)

The Statesman (Texts in the History of Political Thought)

Plato Julia Annas Robin Waterfield
3.8/5 (741 ratings)
The Statesman is Plato's neglected political work, but it is crucial for an understanding of the development of his political thinking. It continues themes from the Republic, particularly the importance of knowledge as entitlement to rule. But there are also changes: Plato has altered his view of the moral psychology of the citizen, and revised his position on the role of law and institutions. This new translation makes accessible the dialogue to students of political thought and the introduction outlines the philosophical and historical backgrounds.
