The book is dedicated to the political logic of the ancient Greek philosopher Plato,and Platonism’s reception among the post-Nietzschean philosophers of the 20th century(Martin Heidegger, Hannah Arendt, Leo Strauss, Michel Foucault, Gilles Deleuze,and Jacques Derrida). The author proposes a series of new methods of historical andphilosophic analysis, and a typology of political thought in continental and analyticaltraditions. He reviews the newest trends in studying ancient political life, offers thoroughand detailed commentary on Plato’s Republic, and analyses the key anti-Platonictexts of post-Nietzschean philosophers that had a great impact on the development ofa continental philosophy in the 20th century. The author formulates the main politicalproblem — the mutual untranslatability of the languages of freedom and justice —which has remained in force throughout the entire history of European thought.

The book is intended for upper-level undergraduate students and postgraduate studentsof the Faculty of Philosophy, professional researchers of political theory, as well asfor anyone interested in the history of the formation of modern philosophical and politicalthought, its current problems, and prospects for development.
