Plato's Parmenides by Plato( )

14 editions published between 1983 and 2010 in English and held by 2,504 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 2,217 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 )

96 editions published between 1954 and 2020 in English and Chinese and held by 2,164 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( )

24 editions published between 1761 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alcibiades I by Plato( )

20 editions published between 1736 and 2017 in 6 languages and held by 2,087 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

50 editions published between 1827 and 2018 in 4 languages and held by 1,972 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

15 editions published between 1996 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,861 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Menexenus by Plato( )

20 editions published between 1538 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 1,841 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A dialogue between Socrates and Menexenus (not to be confused with Socrates's son Menexenus). Most of the dialogue consists of a funeral oration"--Provided by publisher
Phaedo by Plato( Book )

247 editions published between 1769 and 2019 in 15 languages and held by 1,827 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
Timaeus and Critias by Plato( )

13 editions published between 1929 and 2011 in English and held by 1,781 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 Parmenides : text, translation & introductory essay by Plato( )

11 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,695 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gorgias by Plato( Book )

92 editions published between 1540 and 2017 in 10 languages and held by 1,687 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
Selected myths by Plato( )

19 editions published between 2004 and 2019 in English and held by 1,639 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
Ion ; Hippias minor ; Laches ; Protagoras by Plato( )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 1,630 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ion, or, On the Iliad by Plato( )

15 editions published in 2007 in English and Greek, Ancient and held by 1,501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presents a revised text of Plato's Ion, with apparatus criticus, and an extensive commentary, with a linguistic orientation. This book includes discussions of Platonic vocabulary
Phaedrus by Plato( Book )

121 editions published between 1857 and 2019 in 10 languages and held by 1,471 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Set in the idyllic countryside outside Athens, the Phaedrus is a dialogue between the philosopher Socrates and his young friend Phaedrus, inspired by their reading of a clumsy speech by the writer Lysias about love. After first considering the virtues of romantic love, their conversation develops into a wide-ranging discussion on such subjects as the pursuit of beauty, the nature of humanity, the immortality of the soul and the attainment of truth, and ends with an in-depth consideration of the principles of rhetoric. Probably a work of Plato's maturity, the Phaedrus represents a high point in his achievement as a writer. It remains a fascinating exploration of love, mortality, destiny and what it means to be human."
Meno and other dialogues by Plato( )

14 editions published between 2005 and 2019 in English and held by 1,462 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In these four dialogues Plato considers virtue and its definition. Charmides, Laches, and Lysis investigate the specific virtues of self-control, courage, and friendship; the later Meno discusses the concept of virtue as a whole, and whether it is something that can be taught. In the conversations between Socrates and his interlocutors, moral concepts are debated and shown to be more complex than at first appears, until all the participants in the conversations are reduced to bafflement." "The artistry as well as the philosophy of these dialogues has always been widely admired. The introduction to this edition explains the course of the four dialogues and examines the importance of Socrates' questions and arguments; the notes cover major and minor points in more detail. This is an essential volume for understanding the brilliance of the first Western philosopher."--Jacket
