Have you always wanted to read Plato's »Republic«? There is no such thing as the »Republic«. The original title of Plato's book, »Politeía«, means »constitution of the republic«, or even »good constitution«. Moreover, Plato is not mainly interested in a good constitution for the republic or state, but rather in a good constitution for men (and women), in their happiness and well-being ( eũ práttein). Joachim Lege presents a renarration of Plato's »Politeía« – giving those who are interested the chance to follow Socrates and his friends on their way to finding the concept of Justice (dikaiosýnē).
