Q. Where can I find the "Ring of Gyges" story from Plato's Republic?

I am currently in HUM 401A and I need help finding the "Ring of Gyges" story from Plato's Republic. In addition, any information you can lend me would be helpful.


Use the Book Catalog to find books on any subject.  You can have the book sent to your campus by clicking Place Hold.

Since The Republic is in the public domain, you can easily find it online. For example, Project Gutenberg offers several ebook formats for The Republic. The "Ring of Gyges" story is in book II.
