Charmides, Or Temperance by Platón( )

15 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and held by 2,247 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

Symposium by Plato( Book )

297 editions published between 1782 and 2018 in 13 languages and held by 771 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ils sont allongés sur des lits et parlent de l’Amour et de la Beauté. Leurs discours se succèdent, parfois se répondent : car il y a plusieurs Amours et plusieurs manières de désirer le Beau. A ces hommes vivant en un temps et un lieu où l’éducation des garçons est indissociable de la sexualité qui règle les rapports du maître et du disciple, une étrangère, Diotime, oppose un modèle féminin de la procréation du savoir. A travers elle, Socrate dessine les étapes de l’apprentissage du philosophe capable de se détacher du monde sensible pour devenir «l’amant» par excellence qui guide l’«aimé» dans sa quête du Vrai et du Beau. Par-delà les interprétations prudentes du Banquet que nous a léguées la tradition philosophique, cette traduction invite à une lecture renouvelée du dialogue un Banquet parfois extravagant, à l’image de son objet, d’une richesse stylistique exubérante, souvent cru dans son langage, foisonnant enfin dans sa recherche du bonheur véritable. -- 4ème de couverture
The republic by Plato( Book )

320 editions published between 1781 and 2017 in 16 languages and held by 731 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The best known of Plato's dialogues, "The Republic" applies the principles of philosophy to political affairs. Ostensibly a discussion of the nature of justice, it lays before us Plato's vision of the ideal state, covering a wide range of topics, social, educational, psychological, and moral
Plato unmasked : Plato's Dialogues made new by Platón( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Plato's dialogues in condensed translations that (1) preserve the flavor of the original Greek, and (2) enable the general reader or student to easily follow the thread of Plato's arguments, which are the source of our ideas on: romantic love, immortality of the soul, heaven and hell, divine judgment, social contract, political science, felicific calculus, penal reform, equality of women, child rearing (including prenatal care and the importance of rocking infants), universal education (divided into kindergarten, elementary school, and high school), eugenics, behavioral conditioning, professional military, urban planning, marriage counseling, regulation of environmental pollution, and state mandated care for the aged and name only a few. This book will appeal to students, teachers, and readers studying Plato who want to easily follow his arguments but at the same time gain insight into the characters of the dialogues and their lives."--BOOK JACKET

Alcibiades by Platón( Book )

17 editions published between 1905 and 2001 in 4 languages and held by 375 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Alcibiades was widely read in antiquity as the very best introduction to Plato. Alcibiades in his youth associated with Socrates, and went on to a spectacularly disgraceful career in politics. When Socrates was executed for 'corrupting the young men', Alcibiades was cited as a prime example. This dialogue represents Socrates meeting the charming but intellectually lazy Alcibiades as he is about to enter adult life, and using all his wiles in an attempt to win him for philosophy. In spite of its ancient reputation, many modern scholars have thought that the Alcibiades is not by Plato and it has therefore lacked a decent commentary. This edition remedies that lack. The notes explain difficulties of linguistic, literary and philosophical detail. The introduction includes a discussion of the dialogue's authenticity, and of the consequences that acknowledging its authenticity has for our conception of Plato's intellectual development
Phaedo by Plato( Book )

207 editions published between 1769 and 2016 in 13 languages and held by 370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After an interval of some months or years, and at Phlius, a town of Peloponnesus, the tale of the last hours of Socrates is narrated to Echecrates and other Phliasians by Phaedo the beloved disciple. The Dialogue necessarily takes the form of a narrative, because Socrates has to be described acting as well as speaking. The minutest particulars of the event are interesting to distant friends, and the narrator has an equal interest in them
Philebus by Platón( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Plato's examination of pleasure; a translation of the Philebus, with introduction and commentary by R. Hackforth by Platón( Book )

23 editions published between 1 and 1972 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The trial and death of Socrates; Euthyphro, Apology, Crito, Phaedo by Platón( Book )

9 editions published between 1963 and 1977 in English and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Charmides by Platón( Book )

18 editions published between 1839 and 2019 in 6 languages and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Charmides is a dialogue of Plato, in which Socrates engages a handsome and popular boy in a conversation about the meaning of sophrosyne, a Greek word usually translated into English as "temperance", "self-control", or "restraint". As is typical with Platonic early dialogues, the two never arrive at a completely satisfactory definition, but the discussion nevertheless raises many important points
Phedon : or, a dialogue of the immortality of the soul. From Plato by Platón( )

22 editions published between 1755 and 2018 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gorgias by Plato( Book )

82 editions published between 1540 and 2016 in 9 languages and held by 216 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
