Most widely held works by Plato
The republic by Plato( Book )

259 editions published between 1825 and 2018 in 12 languages and held by 11,938 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A model for the ideal state includes discussion of the nature and application of justice, the role of the philosopher in society, the goals of education, and the effects of art upon character
Gorgias by Plato( Book )

1,016 editions published between 1540 and 2017 in 27 languages and held by 10,830 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Though Gorgias was a Sicilian teacher of oratory, the dialogue is more concerned with ethics than with the art of public speaking. The ability, professed particularly by the Sophists, to make the worse cause appear the better, struck Plato as the source of all corruption. The dialogue's chief interest lies, not in Gorgias' courteous outline of his art, but in the clash between Socrates, the true philosopher, and Callicles, a young Athenian of the stamp of Alcibiades, who brashly maintains that might is right
Plato's Euthyphro by Plato( )

352 editions published between 1745 and 2017 in 14 languages and held by 5,730 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Plato's Parmenides by Plato( )

52 editions published between 1865 and 2003 in English and German and held by 4,738 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This work presents an illuminating new translation of the dialogue together with an extensive introduction and running commentary, giving a unified explanation of the Parmenides and integrating it firmly within the context of Plato's metaphysics and methodology." "Scolnicov shows that in the Parmenides Plato addresses the most serious challenge to his own philosophy: the monism of Parmenides and the Eleatics. In addition to providing a serious rebuttal to Parmenides, Plato here reformulates his own theory of forms and participation, arguments that are central to the whole of Platonic thought, and provides these concepts with a rigorous logical and philosophical foundation. In Scolnicov's analysis, the Parmenides emerges as an extension of ideas from Plato's middle dialogues and as an opening to the later dialogues." "This translation follows the Greek closely, and the commentary affords the Greekless reader a clear understanding of how Scolnicov's interpretation emerges from the text. This volume will provide a valuable introduction and framework for understanding a dialogue that continues to generate lively discussion today."--Jacket
The laws by Plato( )

85 editions published between 1917 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 3,660 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The last of Plato's dialogues, distinguished from his earlier works by its more practical treatment of political problems. Though criticized in some detail by Aristotle in the "Politics", it undoubtedly exercised a profound influence upon his thought, and through him upon subsequent political theory

26 editions published between 1761 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,049 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Crito by Plato( )

28 editions published between 1880 and 2016 in 10 languages and held by 2,011 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Platons »Kriton« spielt im Jahr 399 v.Chr. Sokrates erwartet im Gefängnis seine Hinrichtung, die sich aufgrund kultischer Verpflichtungen Athens verzögert. Sein Freund Kriton besucht ihn, um ihn zur Flucht zu bewegen. Sokrates lehnt diesen Vorschlag jedoch ab, weil auch erlittenes Unrecht nicht dazu berechtigt, selbst Unrecht zu tun. In diesem Dialog demonstriert Platon, wie man methodisch sauber und philosophisch überlegt eine Frage konkreten individuellen Handelns entscheidet. Der erstmals auf Deutsch verfasste Kommentar legt aufbauend auf einer philologisch präzisen Übersetzung besonderen W

The seventh letter by Plato( )

13 editions published between 1996 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,782 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Plato, Clitophon by Plato( )

21 editions published between 1999 and 2006 in English and held by 1,720 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Clitophon, a dialogue generally ascribed to Plato, is significant for focusing on Socrates' role as an exhorter of other people to engage in philosophy. It was almost certainly intended to bear closely on Plato's Republic and is a specimen of the philosophical protreptic, an important genre very fashionable at the time. Professor Slings here provides a text based on new examination of all relevant manuscripts and accompanies it with a translation. The Commentary, the first ever to be published in English, elucidates the Greek and discusses many passages where the meaning is not entirely clear."--Jacket
Timaeus and Critias by Plato( )

9 editions published between 1929 and 2008 in English and held by 1,690 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Timaeus, one of Plato's acknowledged masterpieces, is an attempt to construct the universe and explain its contents by means of as few axioms as possible. The result is a brilliant, bizarre, and surreal cosmos - the product of the rational thinking of a creator god and his astral assistants, and of purely mechanistic causes based on the behaviour of the four elements. At times dazzlingly clear, at times intriguingly opaque, this was state-of-the-art science in the middle of the fourth century BC. The world is presented as a battlefield of forces that are unified only by the will of God, who had to do the best he could with recalcitrant building materials"--Page 4 of cover
Plato's the republic by Plato( Book )

39 editions published between 1900 and 1991 in English and held by 1,615 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Socratic dialogue concerned with the construction of an ideal commonwealth
The Apology, Phaedo, and Crito of Plato by Platón( Book )

15 editions published between 1909 and 2014 in English and Greek, Ancient and held by 1,552 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
The last days of Socrates by Plato( Book )

15 editions published between 1954 and 2015 in English and Chinese and held by 1,526 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Socrates spent a lifetime analysing ethical issues, and the Euthyphro finds him outside the court-house, still debating the nature of piety with an arrogant acquaintance. The Apology is both a robust rebuttal to the charges of impiety and corrupting young minds and a definitive defence of the philosopher's life. Later, condemned and imprisoned in the Crito, Socrates counters the arguments of friends urging him to escape. And finally, in the Phaedo, Plato shows him calmly confident in the face of death, skilfully arguing the case for the immortality of the soul. Such works, as Harold Tarrant explains in his fine introduction to this revised edition, are no longer regarded by scholars as direct transcriptions of real events; their power to move us - and to challenge our moral assumptions - remains undiminished
