I thought this was an interesting discussion on The Republic, but I did not agree with everything he said and I don't think any great insights were gained. It was one man's opinion, educated as he is, and I think there is no substitute for struggling with the text of The Republic itself. If there is one thing to be learned from Plato it is the value of thinking for yourself.
