The dramatic date of the dialogue has been much debated and though it might have taken place some time during the Peloponnesian War, there would be jarring anachronisms if any of the candidate specific dates between 432 and 404 were assigned.Platos best-known work, it has proven to be one of the worlds most influential works of philosophy and political theory, both intellectually and historically. In it, Socrates along with various Athenians and foreigners discuss the meaning of justice and examine whether or not the just man is happier than the unjust man by considering a series of different cities coming into existence in speech, culminating in a city called Kallipolis (Καλλίπολις), which is ruled by philosopher-kings- and by examining the nature of existing regimes.

The participants also discuss the theory of forms, the immortality of the soul, and the roles of the philosopher and of poetry in society.
