Plato is perhaps the most significant philosopher who has ever lived and The Republic, composed in Athens in about 375BC, is widely regarded as his most famous dialogue. Its discussion of the perfect city - and the perfect mind - laid the foundations for Western culture and, for over two thousand years, has been the cornerstone of Western philosophy. In this book, Simon Blackburn explains the judicial, moral and political ideas in the Republic and examines its influence on the modern world. He shows why, from St Augustine to twentieth-century philosophers such as Whitehead and Bergson, Western thought is still conditioned by this most important of books.
This is a biographical study to discover where and how the poetry intersects the poet's life. That is, whatever in the poetry is biographical is extracted, and that detail, which had been translated to the level of poetry, is then interpreted so that the same piece can be fitted into a jigsaw puzzle that will finally give us the portrait of Louis Dudek as man and artist.
