The Unity of Plato's Republic

Ancient Philosophy 17 (2):291-308 (1997)
Abstract
There has long been scholarly disagreement about how well book one of the Republic fits together with the books that follow. An extreme view finds book one seriously at odds with the rest of the Republic in both philosophical content and argumentative method. The position taken here is that the dialogue is highly unified in both philosophical content and argumentative method. The central doctrines of the later books are contained in book one in compressed form, and the argumentative method of book one, taken as a whole, does not differ substantially from the argumentative method of the later books
