Overview

You can think of Plato's most notable work, The Republic, as a documentation of a dialogue between Socrates, Plato's mentor, and his students. However, since it's one of Plato's "middle" dialogues from later in his life, chances are Socrates serves more as a mouthpiece for Plato's own views here, rather than being the true original source of the ideas in this book about justice.
