      Plato’s Theory of an Ideal State In his most celebrated book the Republic, Plato gives the theory of an ideal state. As far as a state is concerned,Plato gives ideas about how to build an Ideal commonwealth, who should be the rulers of the Ideal state and how to achieve justice in the Ideal state.
