In Res Publica, Günter Zöller offers a concise and perceptive analysis of the influence that Plato’s Republic had on the political thought of three leading German philosophers rarely discussed together—Kant, Hegel and Fichte. He investigates how these three thinkers engaged with one of the founding texts of Western political philosophy to offer their particular interpretations of the forms and norms of the political organization known as the “commonwealth” or res publica. Professor Zöller contextualizes the encounter between an ancient thinker and his modern descendants to demonstrate how the ongoing dialogue between ancient republican thought and 19th-century German Idealism extends to the modern era.

Günter Zöller (b. 1954) is Professor of Philosophy at the University of Munich (Germany). He studied at the University of Bonn (Germany), the École normale supérieure (Paris, France) and Brown University (U.S.A.) and has held visiting professorships at Princeton University, Emory University, Seoul National University, McGill University, the University of Bologna, The Chinese University of Hong Kong and Huazhong University of Science and Technology. He is the author, editor and coeditor of 35 books and the author of 300 articles in classical German philosophy.
