The importance of the introduction to the first book of Plato's 'Republic' has been underrated by the contemporary scholars. However, the scene in question is of great importance for understanding the relations between philosophy and politics, and the very sense of political philosophy. Leo Strauss and his school (A. Bloom, S. Rosen, S. Benardete) have presented a very influential interpretation of this introductory scene of Plato's 'Republic'. This article gives an account of that interpretation and points out how the Straussians use a new method of reading Plato's philosophy in a political context.
