    PDF/EBOOK Πολιτεία I’ve gotten into the habit of dividing up the books I’ve read by whether I read them before or after Plato’s Republic Before The Republic reading was a disorganized activity—much the same as wading through a sea of jumbled thoughts and opinions I had no basis from which to select books except by how much they appealed to my naïve tastes But after reading The Republic it was as if the entire intellectual landscape was put
