Throughout The Republic, Plato presents multiple theories of our world and society and how we interact with each other. So many of the points are logical and interesting, and some even still apply to our society now even though this book was written close to 2,300 years ago. Right now society is something our generation obsesses over. Everyone rants about how messed up our society is and how unfair our world is, but they do nothing about it. They still continue to do exactly what they complain about on social media. I think this book is a really good book for our generation because our societies ways have always been the same at the core, they just seem like they change cause we change.
In 6th grade I was shown a quote in my social studies class by my teacher, Ms. Hagberg. She had us all try and guess when the quote was written and we all guessed in about a hundred year range of that year. That quote was written by Socrates about 2,300 years ago.
