Professor David Roochnik presents a compelling set of lectures on Plato's REPUBLIC. There are 24 lectures about one book, but THE REPUBLIC is no ordinary book. A book about politics, philosophy, education, and poetry, it's one of the great synoptic books of Western Civilization. Roochnik's speaking quality is good, although it is not that of a professional actor. He is clearly working from a prepared text, but he is not slavishly reading from it. There is a measured excitement in his presentation, and that excitement helps the listener maintain interest. He does a great job of explaining Plato's REPUBLIC in ways that both someone who's read it before and someone who's never read it will learn from.
