Socrates : a very short introduction by C. C. W Taylor( Book )

31 editions published between 1998 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 1,274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Christopher Taylor explores the relationship between the historical Socrates and the Platonic character, and examines the enduring image of Socrates as the ideal exemplar of the philosophic life: a thinker whose moral and intellectual integrity permeated every detail of his life, even in the face of betrayal and execution by his fellow Athenians
Protagoras by Plato( Book )

53 editions published between 1976 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,259 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
From the beginning to Plato( Book )

34 editions published between 1994 and 2005 in English and held by 689 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Volume 1 of the Routledge History of Philosophy covers one of the most remarkable periods in human thought. In the space of two and a half centuries, philosophy developed from quasi-mythological speculation to a state in which many of the most fundamental questions about the universe, the mind and human conduct had been vigorously pursued, and some of the most enduring masterworks of Western thought had been written. Supplemented with a chronology, a glossary of technical terms and an extensive bibliography, this volume will prove an invaluable and comprehensive guide to the beginnings of philosophy. R.G.

Nicomachean ethics by Aristotle( Book )

Human agency : language, duty, and value : philosophical essays in honor of J.O. Urmson by Jonathan Dancy( Book )

8 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pleasure, mind, and soul : selected papers in ancient philosophy by C. C. W Taylor( Book )

12 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"C. C.W. Taylor presents a selection of his essays in ancient philosophy, drawn from forty years of writings on the subject. The central theme of the volume is the moral psychology of Plato and Aristotle, with a special focus on pleasure and related concepts, an area central to Greek ethical thought. Taylor also discusses Socrates and the Greek atomists (including the Epicureans), showing how Plato's ethics grows out of the thought of Socrates, and that pleasure is also a central concept for the atomists. Pleasure, Mind, and Soul provides a fascinating survey of range of important topics in the work of some of the greatest ancient philosophers, which remain the subject of lively philosophical debate today."--Jacket
On Aristotle Physics 1.3-4 by Simplicius( Book )

6 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this volume Simplicius is dealing with Aristotle's account of the Presocratics, and for many of them he is our chief or even sole authority. He quotes at length from Melissus, Parmenides and Zeno, sometimes from their original works but also from later writers from Plato onwards, drawing particularly on Alexander's lost commentary on Aristotle's Physics and on Porphyry. Much of his approach is just scholarly, but in places he reveals his Neoplatonist affiliation and attempts to show the basic agreement among his predecessors in spite of their apparent differences."--Publisher description

Greek philosophers by C. C. W Taylor( Book )

7 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work contains essays on three of the most important figures in the history of Western philosophy: Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle. Almost uniquely for someone whose thought has been so influential, Socrates wrote nothing himself, and our knowledge of his philosophical opinions and method is derived mainly from the engaging and infuriating figure who appears in Plato's dialogues. The philosophy of Socrates and Plato is therefore closely interconnected, and the most powerful elements of Plato's mature thought form the basis of an interpretation of knowledge, reality and morality which is still held and debated by philosophers today. Aristotle's approach to these and other issues is in many ways directly opposed to that of Plato, and has been no less influential. His scientific explorations and systematic philosophical investigation have been instrumental in the development of Western philosophy as we know it, and he remains a pivotal figure in metaphysical and ethical thinking
