Abstract:
This thesis explores the relationship between the ideal government in Plato's Republic and the contemporary Cuban government. There are parallels in the structure of both governments and in the tensions produced between their endorsement of Socratic inquiry and their censorship of the mis. This tension can be resolved through the application of Simone de Beauvoir's Existential ethics of ambiguity which reintroduce Socratic dialogue and realistic expectations to the regimes centered on black and white thinking of ideal government.
