(Half) JaysAnalysis: Plato’s Republic Conclusion – The Ancient Mysteries

In this free first hour, we recap and review Plato’s Republic, and conclude the analysis with a look at the final book of the Republic, Book X, and its description of the afterlife in the esoteric “Myth of Er.” In hour 2 for paid subscribers, I explain the mystery religions, including Orphism and the Eleusinian Mysteries and their connection to Plato and how this is altered in Plato’s later reformation of the Republic into “Magnesia,” with its Nocturnal Council in The Laws, as well as the connection to cymatics and the universe as music.

  2. Jay I have heard that the title of Plato’s Republic could translated as “The Commonwealth” and was purposely not translated that way in the west. Is this true?
