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

382 editions published between 1825 and 2016 in 15 languages and held by 7,240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

575 editions published between 1736 and 2014 in 20 languages and held by 5,208 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
Symposium by Plato( Book )

327 editions published between 1782 and 2016 in 14 languages and held by 2,594 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
The dialogues of Plato by Plato( Book )

22 editions published between 1892 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,540 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Dialogues of Plato, written between 427 and 347 B.C., rank among the most important and influential works in Western thought. Most famous are the first four, in which Plato casts his teacher Socrates as the central disputant in colloquies that brilliantly probe a vast spectrum of philosophical ideas and issues. Socrates' ancient words are still true, and the ideas found in Plato's Dialogues still form the foundation of a thinking person's education
The Republic by Plato( Book )

130 editions published between 1902 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 2,471 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Republic, a masterpiece of philosophical and political thought, concerns righteousness both in individuals and in communities and proposes an ideal state organized and governed on philosophical principles. This edition, which replaces the original Loeb edition by Paul Shorey, offers text, translation, and annotation that are fully current with modern scholarship"--Jacket
Phaedrus by Plato( Book )

106 editions published between 1810 and 2014 in 8 languages and held by 1,882 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Phaedrus is widely recognized as one of Plato's most profound and beautiful works. It takes the form of a dialogue between Socrates and Phaedrus and its ostensible subject is love, especially homoerotic love. Socrates reveals it to be a kind of divine madness that can allow our souls to grow wings and soar to their greatest heights. Then the conversation changes direction and turns to a discussion of rhetoric, which must be based on truth passionately sought, thus allying it to philosophy. The dialogue closes by denigrating the value of the written word in any context, compared to the living teaching of a Socratic philosopher." "The shifts of topic and register have given rise to doubts about the unity of the dialogue, doubts which are addressed in the introduction to this volume. Full explanatory notes also elucidate issues throughout the dialogue that might puzzle a modern reader."--Jacket
Gorgias by Plato( Book )

151 editions published between 1775 and 2016 in 15 languages and held by 1,496 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
Phaedrus by Plato( Book )

81 editions published between 1952 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""A superb translation that captures the rhetorical brilliance of the Greek. ... The translation is faithful in the very best sense: it reflects both the meaning and the beauty of the Greek text. ... The footnotes are always helpful, never obtrusive. A one-page outline is useful since there are no editorial additions to mark major divisions in the dialogue. An appendix containing fragments of early Greek love poetry helps the reader appreciate the rich, and perhaps elusive, meaning of eros. ... The entire Introduction is crisply written, and the authors' erudition shines throughout, with
Plato's Parmenides by Plato( Book )

17 editions published between 1868 and 2010 in English and German and held by 704 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
Timaeus and Critias by Plato( Book )

15 editions published between 1929 and 2008 in English and held by 550 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
The being of the beautiful : Plato's Theaetetus, Sophist, and Statesman by Plato( Book )

11 editions published between 1984 and 2006 in English and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Being of the Beautiful collects Platos three dialogues, the Theaetetus, Sophist, and Statesmen, in which Socrates formulates his conception of philosophy while preparing for trial. Renowned classicist Seth Benardetes careful translations clearly illuminate the dramatic and philosophical unity of these dialogues and highlight Platos subtle interplay of language and structure. Extensive notes and commentaries, furthermore, underscore the trilogys motifs and relationships. "The translations are masterpieces of literalness. ... They are honest, accurate, and give the reader a wonderful s
Crito by Plato( Book )

104 editions published between 1592 and 2015 in 8 languages and held by 479 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

13 editions published between 1926 and 2012 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The great Athenian philosopher Plato was born in 427 BCE and lived to be eighty.

The development of Plato's political theory by George Klosko( Book )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Charmides, or temperance by Plato( Book )

15 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 4 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. This is a dialogue in which Socrates asks Charmids to explain his conception of the modesty which he possesses. The dialogue leads to a confession of ignorance
