A TRUE MODERN CLASSIC

By gtc53 - February 24, 2013

A WONDERFUL WORK OF SCHOLARSHIP ARGUMENT AND CLARITY

CONTROVERSIAL AND BRILLIANT

A MASTERPIECE OF POLITICAL PHILOSOPHY

POPPER'S WORK ON PLATO HERE IS UNEQUALED

THIS WORK IS AN INTELLECTUAL PLEASURE OF THE HIGHEST ORDER

Very interesting philosophical insights

By J. Miller - February 22, 2013

This is an excellent work to read if you would like to think about what an "open society" is, and how it can be defended from the forces of what Karl Popper calls "historicist" thinking (which, in his view, leads to totalitarian modes of thought and utopian social engineering.) Popper's critique of Plato's political thought is especially interesting, as Popper claims that the totalitarian ideas which plagued the 20th Century -- most specifically Communism and National Socialism -- had their intellectual roots in Plato's writings. A fascinating read.
