Plato's Parmenides by Plato( )

13 editions published between 1983 and 2010 in English and held by 2,422 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
Meno by Plato( )

21 editions published between 1949 and 2019 in 5 languages and held by 2,296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The laws by Plato( )

20 editions published between 1934 and 2018 in English and held by 2,271 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 Republic of Plato by Plato( Book )

61 editions published between 1866 and 2009 in 5 languages and held by 2,179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sophist by Plato( )

24 editions published between 1856 and 2019 in 3 languages and held by 2,146 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
Symposium by Plato( Book )

137 editions published between 1782 and 2018 in 11 languages and held by 2,098 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A model of the kind of text one needs for lecture courses: the translation is extremely readable and made even more accessible by intelligent printing decisions (on dividing the text, spacing for clarification, etc.); the notes are kept to a minimum but appear when they are really needed for comprehension and are truly informative. And the introduction admirably presents both basic information and a sense of current scholarly opinion. --S. G. Nugent, Princeton University
The last days of Socrates by Plato( Book )

48 editions published between 1954 and 2015 in English and Chinese and held by 2,069 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
Crito by Plato( )

19 editions published between 1891 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 1,973 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 the teachings of Socrates, Plato's works are among the world's greatest literature. The Crito seems intended to exhibit the character of Socrates in one light only, not as the philosopher, fulfilling a divine mission and trusting in the will of heaven, but simply as the good citizen, who having been unjustly condemned is willing to give up his life in obedience to the laws of the state
Alcibiades I by Plato( )

16 editions published between 1736 and 2017 in 6 languages and held by 1,933 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Alcibiades I" by Plato is a discussion between Socrates and Alcibiades about the corruption of the youth in Athens
Protagoras by Plato( )

181 editions published between 1828 and 2019 in 15 languages and held by 1,874 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Meno sees an older but ever ironic Socrates humbling a proud young aristocrat as they search for a clear understanding of what it is to be a good man, and setting out the startling idea that all human learning may be the recovery of knowledge already possessed by our immortal souls." "Adam Beresford's lively new translation makes the arguments clear and easy to follow, and captures Plato's naturalism and humour. In her introduction, Lesley Brown provides a concise overview of the central philosophical issues of the two works and of their influence on later philosophy."--Jacket
Laches by Plato( )

18 editions published between 1876 and 2017 in 6 languages and held by 1,847 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This eBook version of Laches presents the full text of this literary classic
Lesser hippias by Plato( )

15 editions published between 1761 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,844 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Symposium ; and, the Phaedrus : Plato's erotic dialogues by Plato( )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 1,796 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Symposium and the Phaedrus are combined here because of their shared theme: a reflection on the nature of erotic love, the love that begins with sexual desire but can transcend that origin and reach even the heights of religious ecstasy. This reflection is carried out explicitly in the speeches and conversations in the dialogues, and implicitly in the dramatic depiction of actions and characters. Thus, the two dialogues deal with a theme of enduring interest and are interesting for both their literary and their philosophical character. In addition to the introduction, the book contains substantial commentaries and thorough endnotes. Key Greek terms are discussed for readers who are unfamiliar with the language. A special feature is a discussion on the importance of the dramatic and literary aspects of the dialogues for interpreting their philosophical content. -- Back cover
The Apology, Phaedo, and Crito of Plato by Plato( Book )

126 editions published between 1739 and 2019 in 14 languages and held by 1,624 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Socrates defends himself in court in this resounding speech, recounted firsthand by one of history's greatest philosophers. Plato's Apology is an account of the speech Socrates makes at the Athenian trial in which he is charged with not accepting the gods recognized by the state, inventing new deities, and corrupting the youth of Athens. Recounted by Plato, Socrates's speech is a rousing examination of integrity, wisdom, and the role of a philosopher. It is filled with wit, intelligence, and lessons that remain relevant today
Gorgias by Plato( Book )

105 editions published between 1540 and 2017 in 13 languages and held by 1,562 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 1838 and 2010 in English and Greek, Ancient and held by 1,559 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
