The Republic is the most famous dialogue composed by Plato in about 375 BC. It is in form of a conversation between Socrates and three different interlocutors. They discuss the nature of man, the soul, justice, and what the most just society should be like. It is a utopian account of how to best organize a society and how to plan out a stable and violence-free society or republic. Plato’s Republic has greatly influenced Western culture and philosophy.

I like science fiction (space operas) and fantasy (especially about dragons). I am not stuck with just favorite authors. After all they were unknown authors before they became favorites. I do read book reviews by people who have actually read the book and base my selection on what has been said about the book.
