Plato's Republic

Read Book V through Book VIII from this edition of Plato's Republic. Notice that there is a section of each book, followed by an explanation by the translator. Then read the two articles from Garth Kemerling's PhilosophyPages. Pay attention to how both the translator of Republic and Mr. Kemerling treat the following concepts: justice, ideal forms, and the ideal city. Notice also the concept of the Ideal Form of the Good. What would a perfect city look like? Is this part of understanding justice and right in our own world?
