lato.The Republic.
 About the author 
Plato (c. 427 BC – c. 347BC) was an immensely in-fluential classical Greek phi-losopher, student of Socrates,teacher of Aristotle, andfounder of the Academy inAthens.Plato, a philodorian, it is believed, lectured extensively atthe Academy; but he also wrote on many philosophical is-sues, and his presence survives through his written philosophi-cal/dramatic compositions, preserved in manuscripts recov-ered and edited in many editions in many countries since thebirth of the Humanist movement. The written corpus of Platoconsists almost entirely of dialogues; in addition there are,however, epigrams and letters. All the known dialogues of Plato survive; modern-day standard editions of his oeuvre inaddition generally contain dialogues considered by the con-sensus of scholars either suspect (e.g., Alcibiades, Clitophon)or probably spurious (such as Demodocus, or the SecondAlcibiades). The personage of Socrates often makes an appearance inthe dialogues of Plato; of course, the question always remainsas to how much of the content/argument of a given dialogueis Socrates' point of view, and how much of it Plato's.
