dc.description.abstractIn this dissertation I analyse and criticise the Republic. I focus particularly on Plato’s political vision – his Kallipolis or ideal state. I take a lead at a number of points from Karl Popper (see bibliography). I try to decipher what Plato is saying and try to find out whether it is internally coherent. I draw out consequences of his view. I criticise Plato’s Kallipolis using the contemporary values of freedom and democracy. Ultimately I argue that Plato’s political vision in the Republic is deeply flawed and should be rejected.en
