Plato To Go (The Republic Now on iTunes)

If you have some time on your hands, you can down­load and lis­ten to a com­plete audio ver­sion of Pla­to’s Repub­lic on your iPod. Divid­ed into 12 install­ments, this mon­u­ment of polit­i­cal the­o­ry is writ­ten in dia­logue form. And it cer­tain­ly helps that these dia­logues are read by an actor. This nice touch helps hold your atten­tion, while also giv­ing you a good feel for the aes­thet­ics of Pla­ton­ic dia­logues. (They were meant to be spo­ken, rather than read, after all.) If you have iTunes, click here to enter. If you don’t, you can down­load it here from Apple for free. Enjoy.
