Platon by Léon Robin( Book )

73 editions published between 1935 and 2009 in 5 languages and held by 633 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Si l'autorité du nom de Platon est encore vivace, c'est que, pour ne pas parler de la science, la philosophie du moins ne peut se refuser à voir en lui un précurseur. C'est en effet par lui que les plus essentiels des problèmes auxquels elle s'applique ont été pour la première fois dégagés et posés

Phaedrus by Plato( Book )

87 editions published between 1933 and 2010 in 7 languages and held by 208 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
Le système d'Aristote by Octave Hamelin( Book )

24 editions published between 1920 and 1985 in French and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Phaedo by Plato( Book )

6 editions published between 1964 and 2005 in Greek, Ancient and German and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Plato's Phaedo is deservedly one of the best known works of Greek literature, but also one of the most complex. Set in the prison where Socrates is awaiting execution, it portrays Plato's model philosopher in action, spending his last hours in conversation with two other seasoned members of his circle about the fate of the human soul after death. Professor Rowe attempts to help the reader find a way through the intricate structure both of individual passages and arguments and of the dialogue as a whole, stressing its intelligibility as a unified work of art and giving equal attention to its literary and philosophical aspects
