Protagoras by Plato( Book )

380 editions published between 1736 and 2015 in 17 languages and held by 3,534 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

The last days of Socrates by Plato( Book )

21 editions published between 1954 and 2012 in English and Chinese and held by 1,347 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
Gorgias by Plato( Book )

170 editions published between 1540 and 2014 in 12 languages and held by 1,277 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 )

75 editions published between 1810 and 2013 in 9 languages and held by 1,067 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"New to Penguin, Christopher Rowe's translation of Phaedrus conveys the lucidity and humour of Plato's great work, while his introduction considers the philosophy of the work and places it in context. This edition also includes detailed notes, an appendix and a comprehensive further reading list."--Jacket
Plato's Parmenides by Plato( Book )

12 editions published between 1868 and 2010 in English and German and held by 562 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
Crito by Plato( Book )

189 editions published between 1541 and 2015 in 15 languages and held by 531 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
Timaeus and Critias by Plato( Book )

13 editions published between 1929 and 2008 in English and held by 433 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
Cratylus by Plato( Book )

113 editions published between 1770 and 2015 in 13 languages and held by 371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thought by some to be the highest point reached by the science of language in antiquity. It deals with the importance of dialectic and the contrast between Heracliteanism and Eleaticism"--Provided by publisher
The laws by Plato( Book )

17 editions published between 1926 and 2012 in English and Greek, Ancient and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The great Athenian philosopher Plato was born in 427 BCE and lived to be eighty. Acknowledged masterpieces among his works are the Symposium, which explores love in its many aspects, from physical desire to pursuit of the beautiful and the good, and the Republic, which concerns righteousness and also treats education, gender, society, and slavery
Menexenus by Plato( Book )

20 editions published between 1538 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 30 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
The lesser Hippias by Plato( )

11 editions published between 1761 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Charmides, or temperance by Plato( )

15 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 5 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
