Description
One of the key works of world philosophy, Plato's The Republic sets out to consider the principles behind an ideal city state. This is the first audio recording of Plato's great classic in a new translation by the Greek scholar Tom Griffith. No sooner than Bruce Alexander had left the studio having recorded Thomas Hardy, he was back at his Oxfordshire home studying hard for the next Naxos AudioBooks project Plato's The Republic. 'There couldn't have been a greater contrast -- the deeply emotional Hardy, and the rationalist character of Socrates,' admitted Bruce Alexander. And both are about as far away possible from the character for which he is probably best known, Superintendent Mullett in the British TV series A Touch of Frost. 'That is what being an actor is all about,' declared Alexander. 'The worst thing for us is when are typecast, which can happen so easily.' Fortunately, this happens less the Audiobook/radio medium than on or film where visual concerns can be paramount.' This recording of The Republic uses the new translation by Tom Griffith, who prepared it for Cambridge University Press. It will be released by CUP in the near future, but is 'previewed' by this abridgement made by the translator himself. 'I started translating because I found that when I was teaching, and read from existing translations, I could see the interest fade from my pupils' eyes, explained Griffith. 'But I know this can capture the imagination and thoughts of young people, and so I started translating passages in language which was as contemporary as the original would have been in the fifth century B. C.' The Republic is one of a number of translations he has now included -- among others is Symposium.

display_description"The Republic is Plato's masterwork. It was written 2,400 years ago and remains one of the most widely read books in the world, famous for both the richness of its ideas and the virtuosity of its writing. Presented as a dialogue between Plato's teacher Socrates and various interlocutors, it is an exhortation to study philosophy, inviting its readers to reflect on the choices we must make if we are to live the best life available to us. This complex, dynamic work creates a picture of an ideal society governed not money, power, or fame, but by philosophy, wisdom, and justice."--Publisher's website.
