Charmides, or temperance by Platón( )

15 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,208 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

Meno II by Platón( )

6 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,751 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Plato, Clitophon by Platón( )

17 editions published between 1999 and 2006 in English and held by 1,719 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Clitophon, a dialogue generally ascribed to Plato, is significant for focusing on Socrates' role as an exhorter of other people to engage in philosophy. It was almost certainly intended to bear closely on Plato's Republic and is a specimen of the philosophical protreptic, an important genre very fashionable at the time. Professor Slings here provides a text based on new examination of all relevant manuscripts and accompanies it with a translation. The Commentary, the first ever to be published in English, elucidates the Greek and discusses many passages where the meaning is not entirely clear."--Jacket
The laws by Plato( Book )

73 editions published between 1917 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 1,603 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The last of Plato's dialogues, distinguished from his earlier works by its more practical treatment of political problems. Though criticized in some detail by Aristotle in the "Politics", it undoubtedly exercised a profound influence upon his thought, and through him upon subsequent political theory

31 editions published between 1900 and 1991 in English and held by 1,571 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Socratic dialogue concerned with the construction of an ideal commonwealth
Plato's Republic by Platón( Book )

48 editions published between 1915 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the greatest works of philosophy, political theory, and literature ever produced, Plato's Republic has shaped Western thought for thousands of years and remains as relevant today as when it was written during the fourth century B.C. Republic begins by posing a central question: "What is justice, and why should we be just, especially when the wicked often seem happier and more successful?" For Plato, the answer lies with the ways people, groups, and institutions organize and behave. A brilliant inquiry into the problems of constructing the perfect state and the roles education, the arts, family, and religion should play in our lives, Republic employs picturesque settings, sharply outlined characters, and conversational dialogue to drive home the philosopher's provocative arguments
The Republic by Platón( Book )

135 editions published between 1763 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 1,221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Socratic dialogue concerned with the construction of an ideal commonwealth
The laws of Plato by Platón( Book )

54 editions published between 1921 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 1,200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Laws, Plato's longest dialogue, has for centuries been recognised as the most comprehensive exposition of the practical consequences of his philosophy, a necessary corrective to the more visionary and utopian Republic. In this animated encounter between a foreign philosopher and a powerful statesman, not only do we see reflected, in Plato's own thought, eternal questions of the relation between political theory and practice, but we also witness the working out of a detailed plan for a new political order that embodies the results of Plato's mature reflection on the family, the status of women, property rights, criminal law, and the role of religion and the fine arts in a healthy republic." -- Back cover

Gorgias by Plato( Book )

207 editions published between 1540 and 2016 in 17 languages and held by 523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Taking the form of a dialogue between Socrates, Gorgias, Polus and Callicles, the Gorgias debates crucial questions about the nature of government. While the aspiring politician Callicles propounds the view that might is right, and the rhetorician Gorgias argues that oratory and the power to persuade represent 'the greatest good', Socrates insists on the duty of politicians to consider the welfare of their citizens - a duty he believed had been dishonoured in the Athens of his time. The dialogue offers insights into how classical Athens was governed, as well as creating a theoretical framework that has been highly influential on subsequent political debate." "Walter Hamilton's translation has been completely updated for this new edition, taking recent developments in scholarship into account. In his introduction, Chris Emlyn-Jones examines Plato's use of the dialogue form and his relationship with his teacher Socrates. This edition also includes a section-by-section commentary, a chronology, suggestions for further reading, a glossary and index."--Jacket
