Most widely held works by Benjamin Jowett
The dialogues of Plato by Plato( Book )

117 editions published between 1871 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,744 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Dialogues of Plato, written between 427 and 347 B.C., rank among the most important and influential works in Western thought. Most famous are the first four, in which Plato casts his teacher Socrates as the central disputant in colloquies that brilliantly probe a vast spectrum of philosophical ideas and issues. Socrates' ancient words are still true, and the ideas found in Plato's Dialogues still form the foundation of a thinking person's education
The works of Plato by Plato( Book )

38 editions published between 1800 and 1990 in English and held by 2,438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aristotle's Politics by Aristotle( Book )

68 editions published between 1800 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 2,003 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This English translation of the Poetics is supplemented by full explanatory and glossarial notes. In his introduction the editor discusses the work in terms of Aristotelian thought and its Platonic roots, thereby correcting the dogmatism that often attends study of the Poetics. The introduction also fully outlines the work's historical influence
The republic by Plato( Book )

106 editions published between 1881 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 1,949 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: Without doubt the greatest and most provocative work of political philosophy ever produced in the West, The Republic is here presented in the stately and melodious Jowett translation-a perfect mirror of the beauty of Plato's style. Beginning as an inquiry into justice as it operates in individuals, The Republic soon becomes an inquiry into the problems of constructing the perfect state. Are the masses really qualified to choose virtuous leaders? Should the rulers of a state receive a special education to prepare them to exercise power virtuously? What should such an education consist of? Should artists who do not use their gifts in a morally responsible way still be allowed a place in society? The Republic's answers to these and related questions make up a utopian (or, perhaps, dystopian) program that challenges many of the modern world's most dearly held assumptions-and leads us to reexamine and better understand those assumptions. --
Protagoras by Plato( Book )

42 editions published between 1952 and 2008 in English and held by 537 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Protagoras is one of Plato's most entertaining dialogues. It represents Socrates at a gathering of the most celebrated and highest-earning intellectuals of the day, among them the sophist Protagoras. In flamboyant displays of both rhetoric and dialectic, Socrates and Protagoras try to out-argue one another. Their arguments range widely, from political theory to literary criticism, from education to the nature of cowardice; but in view throughout this literary and philosophical masterpiece are the questions of what part knowledge plays in a successful life, and how we may acquire the knowledge that makes for success
Timaeus by Plato( Book )

23 editions published between 1947 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Donald J. Zeyl's translation of Timaeus is presented along with his 75 page introductory essay, which discusses points of contemporary interest in the Timaeus, deals at length with long-standing and current issues of interpretation, and provides a consecutive commentary on the work as a whole
Meno by Plato( Book )

33 editions published between 1947 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Dialogue begins abruptly with a question of Meno, who asks, 'whether virtue can be taught.' Socrates replies that he does not as yet know what virtue is, and has never known anyone who did. 'Then he cannot have met Gorgias when he was at Athens.' Yes, Socrates had met him, but he has a bad memory, and has forgotten what Gorgias said. Will Meno tell him his own notion, which is probably not very different from that of Gorgias? 'O yes-nothing easier: there is the virtue of a man, of a woman, of an old man, and of a child; there is a virtue of every age and state of life, all of which may be easily described.'

Sophist by Plato( )

16 editions published between 1996 and 2009 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a fluent and accurate new translation of the dialogue that, all of Plato's works, has seemed to speak most directly to the interests of contemporary analytical philosophers. White's extensive introduction explores the dialogue's center themes, its connection with related discussions in other dialogues, and its implication for the interpretation of Plato's metaphysics
The trial of Socrates : (with chapters on his life, teaching, and personality) by Plato( Book )

17 editions published between 1933 and 2014 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This historically renowned oration was presented by Socrates in his own defense after he had been formally accused of corrupting the youth of Athens. It is not an apology in the traditional sense of expressing remorse for one's actions; rather, Socrates' Apology (recorded by his faithful student and protege Plato) is a succinct and compelling defense of the brilliant philosopher's worldview, lifestyle, and teaching methods. A rewarding read for fans of philosophy and supporters of

Cratylus by Plato( Book )

15 editions published between 1996 and 2008 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is a well-known saying that the whole of Western Philosophy is footnotes of Plato. This is because his writings have set the schema that philosophy can be said to have followed ever since. Following under the teachings of Socrates, Plato's works are among the world's greatest literature. Cratylus is of opinion that a name is either a true name or not a name at all. He is unable to conceive of degrees of imitation; a word is either the perfect expression of a thing, or a mere inarticulate sound. Of the real Cratylus we know nothing, except that he is recorded by Aristotle to have been the friend or teacher of Plato
