“The Problem with Plato’s Myth of Er”
Abstract: Is the Myth of Er a fitting close to Plato’s Republic? What philosophical work, if any, does it perform? This paper will examine the Myth of Er in the context of Plato’s use of myth generally, early Greek thought on the afterlife, and the central issues of the Republic itself.
