Plato's Parmenides by Plato( )

11 editions published between 1983 and 2010 in English and held by 2,401 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( )

15 editions published between 1934 and 2018 in English and held by 2,243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Laws, Plato describes in detail a comprehensive system of legislation in a small agricultural utopia he named Magnesia. His laws not only govern crime and punishment, but also form a code of conduct for all aspects of life in his ideal state - from education, sport and religion to sexual behaviour, marriage and drinking parties. Plato sets out a plan for the day-to-day rule of Magnesia, administered by citizens and elected officials, with supreme power held by a Council."--Jacket
The last days of Socrates by Plato( Book )

99 editions published between 1954 and 2020 in English and Chinese and held by 2,190 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
Lesser hippias by Plato( )

30 editions published between 1761 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alcibiades I by Plato( )

Theaetetus by Plato( Book )

95 editions published between 1839 and 2019 in 12 languages and held by 1,942 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

M. J. Levett's elegant translation of Plato's Theaetetus, first published in 1928, is here revised by Myles Burnyeat to reflect contemporary standards of accuracy while retaining the style, imagery, and idiomatic speech for which the Levett translation is unparalleled. Bernard William’s concise introduction, aimed at undergraduate students, illuminates the powerful argument of this complex dialogue, and illustrates its connections to contemporary metaphysical and epistemological concerns
The seventh letter by Plato( )

17 editions published between 1996 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,882 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Crito by Plato( )

13 editions published between 1896 and 2002 in 5 languages and held by 1,878 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This eBook version of Crito presents the full text of this literary classic
Gorgias by Plato( Book )

154 editions published between 1540 and 2018 in 15 languages and held by 1,842 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
Timaeus and Critias by Plato( )

13 editions published between 1929 and 2011 in English and held by 1,633 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
Ion ; Hippias minor ; Laches ; Protagoras by Plato( )

11 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 1,628 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Phaedo by Plato( Book )

234 editions published between 1769 and 2020 in 14 languages and held by 1,610 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After an interval of some months or years, and at Phlius, a town of Peloponnesus, the tale of the last hours of Socrates is narrated to Echecrates and other Phliasians by Phaedo the beloved disciple. The Dialogue necessarily takes the form of a narrative, because Socrates has to be described acting as well as speaking. The minutest particulars of the event are interesting to distant friends, and the narrator has an equal interest in them
Plato's Parmenides : text, translation & introductory essay by Plato( )

11 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,589 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Plato's Republic by Plato( Book )

64 editions published between 1900 and 2020 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the greatest works of philosophy, political theory, and literature ever produced, Plato's Republic has shaped Western thought for thousands of years and remains as relevant today as when it was written during the fourth century B.C. Republic begins by posing a central question: "What is justice, and why should we be just, especially when the wicked often seem happier and more successful?" For Plato, the answer lies with the ways people, groups, and institutions organize and behave. A brilliant inquiry into the problems of constructing the perfect state and the roles education, the arts, family, and religion should play in our lives, Republic employs picturesque settings, sharply outlined characters, and conversational dialogue to drive home the philosopher's provocative arguments
Selected myths by Plato( )

21 editions published between 2004 and 2019 in English and held by 1,516 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume brings together ten of the most celebrated Platonic myths, from eight of Plato's dialogues ranging from the early Protagoras and Gorgias to the late Timaeus and Critias. They include the famous myth of the cave from Republic as well as 'The Judgement of Souls' and 'The Birth of Love'. Each myth is a self-contained story, prefaced by a short explanatory note, while the introduction considers Plato's use of myth and imagery."--Jacket
