The Republic - Book 5

Discussion questions for Book 5:

1. Does Socrates believe women should be treated just the same as men in
all matters?

2. Would having in common all mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers,
wives and husbands, make the State stronger, as Socrates maintains it
would do for the Guardian class?

3. Would society be better off if philosophers were in charge of things?
