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

261 editions published between 1825 and 2018 in 12 languages and held by 8,987 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

New translation of Plato's Republic
Symposium by Plato( Book )

1,292 editions published between 1556 and 2017 in 17 languages and held by 8,866 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A master piece of dramatic dialogue, Plato has few rivals, and in The Symposium he is at his most incisive and entertaining
Gorgias by Plato( Book )

1,027 editions published between 1540 and 2017 in 28 languages and held by 6,904 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
Protagoras by Plato( Book )

488 editions published between 1736 and 2015 in 17 languages and held by 3,665 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In addition to its interest as one of Plato's most brilliant dramatic masterpieces, the Protagoras presents a vivid picture of the crisis of fifth-century Greek thought, in which traditional values and conceptions of humanity were subjected to criticism of the Sophists and to the far more radical criticism of Socrates. The dialogue deals with many themes which are central to the ethical theories which Plato developed under the influence of Socrates, notably, the nature of human excellence, the relation of knowledge to right conduct, and the place of pleasure in the good life. This revised edition includes a new preface and introduction, as well as numerous changes to the translation and commentary
Philebus by Plato( Book )

267 editions published between 1 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 3,231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Tragedy and Comedy of Life, Seth Benardete focuses on the idea of the good in what is widely regarded as one of Plato's most challenging and complex dialogues, the Philebus. Traditionally the Philebus is interpreted as affirming the doctrine that the good resides in thought and mind rather than in pleasure or the body. Benardete challenges this view, arguing that Socrates vindicates the life of the mind over against the life of pleasure not by separating the two and advocating a strict asceticism, but by mixing pleasure and pain with mind in such a way that the philosophic life emerges as the only possible human life. Benardete combines a probing and challenging commentary that subtly mirrors and illumines the complexities of this dialogue with the finest English translation of the Philebus yet available. The result is a work that will be of great value to classicists, philosophers, and political theorists alike
The dialogues of Plato by Plato( Book )

82 editions published between 1901 and 2007 in English and Spanish and held by 2,261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Donated by the Estate of A.G. Charles
Statesman by Plato( Book )

82 editions published between 1925 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 1,455 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Statesman is Plato's neglected political work, but it is crucial for an understanding of the development of his political thinking. In some respects it continues themes from the Republic, particularly the importance of knowledge as entitlement to rule. But there are also changes: Plato has dropped the ambitious metaphysical synthesis of the Republic, changed his view of the moral psychology of the citizen, and revised his position on the role of law and institutions. In its presentation of the statesman's expertise, the Statesman modifies, as well as defending in original ways, this central theme of the Republic
The laws by Plato( Book )

87 editions published between 1917 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 1,380 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
The Apology, Phaedo, and Crito of Plato by Plato( Book )

90 editions published between 1806 and 2014 in 9 languages and held by 1,378 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
Timaeus and Critias by Plato( Book )

52 editions published between 1929 and 2012 in English and held by 952 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
Parmenides' lesson : translation and explication of Plato's Parmenides by Plato( Book )

116 editions published between 1774 and 2015 in 9 languages and held by 864 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A dialogue in which old Parmenides advises the youthful Socrates to argue by the Zenonian method. This is one of Plato's dialectical dialogues"--Provided by publisher
Plato's Euthyphro by Plato( Book )

263 editions published between 1745 and 2017 in 14 languages and held by 709 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. The Euthyphro is one of the short dialogues by which Plato commemorated Socrates's technique and manner in questioning people
Plato's Parmenides by Plato( Book )

34 editions published between 1865 and 2003 in English and German and held by 448 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

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
