Education and the Arts in Plato's "Republic."
Blankenship, J. David
Journal of Education, v178 n3 p67-98 1996
The principles that underlie the education in music and painting described in Plato's "Republic" constitute a theory of the role of the arts in moral education that can be applied in other contexts, including contemporary education. Also explored is Plato's view of the influence of poetry on those not educated in Socrates' system. (SLD)
