This chapter argues that Plato's singular difficulty in and by the constitution of the Republic was in maintaining this subversive and revolutionary education of the educators within the configuration of the new form of the state. It explains that this problem resulted from his attempts to design a curricular structure for maintaining this education and in so doing made a particular form of representation ‘not appear’. It highlights the differences between Alan Badiou and Gregory Vlastos' interpretations of Plato's dialogues.
