The republic by Plato ( Book )
149 editions published between 1875 and 2011 in 8 languages and held by 3,306 libraries worldwide
In this monumental work of moral and political philosophy, Plato sought to answer some of the world's most formidable questions: What does it mean to be good? What enables us to distinguish between right and wrong? How should human virtues be translated into a just society? Perhaps the greatest single treatise written on political philosophy, The Republic has strongly influenced Western thought concerning questions of justice, rule, obedience, and the good life. This work is also undoubtedly the best introduction to Plato's philosophy in general. Not only does it contain his ideas on the state and man, but also his famous theory of forms, his theory of knowledge, and his views on the role of music and poetry in society.

Symposium by Plato ( Book )
31 editions published between 1948 and 2008 in English and held by 1,352 libraries worldwide
One of the most famous works of literature in the Western world, Plato's Symposium is also one of the most entertaining. The scene is a dinner party in Athens in 416 B.C. at which the guests - including the comic poet Aristophanes and Plato's mentor, Socrates - playfully discuss the nature of eros, or love. By turns earthly and sublime, the dialogue culminates with Socrates's famous account of the "ladder of love," an extended analysis of the many forms of eros.
Euthyphro by Plato ( Book )
12 editions published between 1963 and 2008 in English and held by 1,319 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 under the teachings of Socrates, Plato's works are among the world's greatest literature. The Euthyphro is one of the short dialogues by which Plato commemorated Socrates's technique and manner in questioning people.
Protagoras by Plato ( Book )
24 editions published between 1956 and 2008 in English and held by 1,194 libraries worldwide
The Protagoras is one of Plato's most entertaining dialogues. It represents Socrates at a gathering of the most celebrated and highest-earning intellectuals of the day, among them the sophist Protagoras. In flamboyant displays of both rhetoric and dialectic, Socrates and Protagoras try to out-argue one another. Their arguments range widely, from political theory to literary criticism, from education to the nature of cowardice; but in view throughout this literary and philosophical masterpiece are the questions of what part knowledge plays in a successful life, and how we may acquire the knowledge that makes for success.
Apology by Plato ( Book )

11 editions published between 1996 and 2008 in English and held by 887 libraries worldwide
The last of the "dialogues" by the Greek philosopher and mathematician Plato, this meditation on the nature of culture contains much that sounds outmoded to modern ears---such as discussions on slavery and the proper place of women---yet it remains an insightful examination of questions that continue to trouble us today... -- Publisher.

Gorgias by Plato ( Book )
14 editions published between 1892 and 2008 in English and held by 801 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 under the teachings of Socrates, Plato's works are among the world's greatest literature. In the Gorgias, as in nearly all the other dialogues of Plato, we are made aware that formal logic has as yet no existence. The dialogue naturally falls into three divisions, to which the three characters of Gorgias, Polus, and Callicles respectively correspond; and the form and manner change with the stages of the argument.
