Plato's Political Philosophy: The Ideal State in The Republic

Studia UBB Philosophia 2 (2009):83-91 (2009)
This paper aims to present Plato’s political philosophy by focusing on his theoretical building of the Ideal State, presented in The Republic. The first three parts of the present paper corresponds to the three main points underlined after The Republic’s analyse. Through stressing, first, the depicting of the philosopher’s portrait, second the analyses of structure of the Ideal State, third the focus on the causes of the degeneration of this state, these points contribute to the sustaining of the philosopher’s promotion, in order to raise a political state lambda at the level of an Ideal State. Concerning the last raised point, it has as role to evince the tangible consequences inducted by the construction of the Ideal State.
