Plato's Euthyphro by Plato( Book )

14 editions published between 1902 and 1985 in 3 languages and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Euthyphro, Socrates is on his way to the court where he must defend himself against serious charges brought by religious and political authorities. On the way, he meets Euthyphro, an expert on religious matters, who has come to prosecute his own father. Socrates questions Euthyphro's claim that religion serves as the basis for ethics. Plato lived in Athens, Greece. He wrote approximately two-dozen dialogues that explore core topics that are essential to all human beings. Although the historical Socrates was a strong influence on Plato, the character by that name that appears in many of his dialogues is a product of Plato's fertile imagination. All of Plato's dialogues are written in a poetic form that his student Aristotle called "Socratic dialogue." In the twentieth century, the British philosopher and logician Alfred North Whitehead characterized the entire European philosophical tradition as "a series of footnotes to Plato." Philosophy for Plato was not a set of doctrines but a goal -- not the possession of wisdom but the love of wisdom. Agora Publications offers these performances based on the assumption that Plato wrote these works to be performed by actors in order to stimulate additional dialogue among those who listen to them.

Il Timeo by Plato( Book )

32 editions published between 1906 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In questo dialogo Platone affronta due temi: l'origine del mondo e la natura dell'anima umana. La realtà (o l'illusione) nella quale viviamo altro non è che il riflesso di un mondo superiore, in cui regna il puro essere, non soggetto a mutamenti o variazioni. Il nostro, invece, è dominato dal divenire ed è opera di un "demiurgo" che cercò di ripetere come meglio poteva la visione che aveva avuto di quella perfezione. Di qui tutte le contraddizioni che il filosofo deve superare per giungere alla contemplazione del Vero e del Bello. E poi le diverse inclinazioni, le contrastanti passioni cui può cedere l'anima umana, la leggenda di Atlantide, la negazione dell'invidia degli dèi per la fortuna umana, la musica e la ginnastica come medicina dell'anima
Dialoghi by Plato( Book )

37 editions published between 1848 and 2007 in Italian and Undetermined and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Un doppio gioco di gusto letterario e di simpatie ideali mosse Francesco Acri, famoso traduttore ottocentesco, a organizzare questa raccolta, che dell'intero corpus platonico ritaglia sia i dialoghi più noti sia quelli che è arduo trovare in altre edizioni: le ultime giornate di Socrate nell'Apologia, il quadro festoso e malinconico del Convito amoroso, l'ispirata indagine sulla bellezza del Fedro, l'ardua creazione del Timeo (Della natura) e l'esempio impietoso del Parmenide (Delle idee), sono accanto a Eutifrone (Del santo), Critone (Di quel che si deve fare), Fedone (Dell'immortalità dell'anima), Assioco (Della morte), Jone (Del furore poetico), Menone (Della virtù) e Alcibiade (Della natura dell'uomo). Nei Dialoghi la pratica dei Sofisti e di Socrate si unisce alla vocazione di Platone per il teatro e la loro forma è parte essenziale del pensiero che vi si incarna, in cui la parola si fa sentire come un avvicinamento approssimativo alla verità
