    Same anon. I began reading the first few pages a few weeks ago and I can't tell what is trying to be conveyed.

      Are you moronic? The first couple pages is homies talking down at the port.

        I might be. But that's what I'm saying. Will there be a point to the homies talking down at the port? I went into that book expecting philosophy off the bat but got a couple of homies gooning.

        But again, I only skimmed the first few pages and wasn't exactly looking to commit myself to the book. I just wasn't sure if I was lacking context or if I should just keep reading and I'll just get it.

          plato doesn't write straightforward philosophical treatises in his own voice. everything is framed as a conversation other people are having. this is on purpose, plato indirectly explains why he's doing it this way with his supposed argument against writing in the phaedrus. so many people just read that at face value and forget that it's an argument being made in a written text.

            Okay, that makes more sense. I'll keep that in mind

            Allegorical conversations to make philosophical statements made by a greek man? Holy shit, that's actually pretty trippy, how did the mad man come up with it? Pretty avant-garde.

    This book is a lot easier to understand when you realize it is unironically an OneyPlays what if, the equivalent of a bunch of friends talking the shit all day long for ten hours straight

    Maybe it's just not meant for you. Plato's dialogues are so easy to follow, the arguments are always clear and well-structured, often accompanied by imagery and analogies to help you out. Maybe try giving it one more shot with an annotated edition, or take a break and read more literature to develop your reading skills. But yea, if you get filtered a book like Republic, there may not be much hope for improvement.

    Listen to Joshua Graham reading it, I found it much more easier to understand hearing it and while working out:

    read some of his easier works to get a better idea of what he's doing.
    euthyphro, apology, crito, phaedo is the standard intro for a reason

        Both are true. Got any evidence to suggest otherwise?

    Plato was the greatest content creator from ancient Greece. What else is there to get?

    Finished it recently and thoroughly enjoyed it. The Myth of Er at the end was a cherry on top.
