Most widely held works by Benjamin Jowett
The dialogues of Plato by Plato( Book )

148 editions published between 1871 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 3,818 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Dialogues of Plato, written between 427 and 347 B.C., rank among the most important and influential works in Western thought. Most famous are the first four, in which Plato casts his teacher Socrates as the central disputant in colloquies that brilliantly probe a vast spectrum of philosophical ideas and issues. Socrates' ancient words are still true, and the ideas found in Plato's Dialogues still form the foundation of a thinking person's education

Symposium by Plato( Book )

47 editions published between 1892 and 2015 in English and held by 556 WorldCat member 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. The evening ends with a speech by the drunken Alcibiades, the most popular and powerful Athenian of the day, who insists on praising Socrates rather than love, offering up a brilliant character sketch of the enigmatic philosopher
Protagoras by Plato( Book )

38 editions published between 1956 and 2008 in English and held by 540 WorldCat member 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
The laws by Plato( Book )

23 editions published between 1996 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 143 WorldCat member 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
Timaeus by Plato( Book )

22 editions published between 1947 and 2008 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Donald J. Zeyl's translation of Timaeus is presented along with his 75 page introductory essay, which discusses points of contemporary interest in the Timaeus, deals at length with long-standing and current issues of interpretation, and provides a consecutive commentary on the work as a whole
Crito by Plato( Book )

18 editions published between 1940 and 2008 in English and held by 49 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. The Crito seems intended to exhibit the character of Socrates in one light only, not as the philosopher, fulfilling a divine mission and trusting in the will of heaven, but simply as the good citizen, who having been unjustly condemned is willing to give up his life in obedience to the laws of the state

Meno by Plato( Book )

24 editions published between 1947 and 2008 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

<DIV>About G.M.A Grube's translations of Plato: ""Unmistakably superior: more lucid, more accurate, more readable. Above all, they're lucidly adorned, unpretentious, and in translating Plato that counts a good deal. The prose is, as English prose, persuasive, cogent, and as eloquent as it can be without departing from the text. --William Arrowsmith</DIV>
Gorgias by Plato( Book )

21 editions published between 1995 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 23 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 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

Apology by Plato( Book )

15 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Apology is Plato's version of the speech given by Socrates as he defended himself in 399 BC against the charges of "corrupting the young, and by not believing in the gods in whom the city believes, but in other daimonia that are novel . Apology here has its earlier meaning (now usually expressed by the word apologia) of speaking in defense of a cause or of one's beliefs or actions. The Apology is divided into three parts. The first part is Socrates' own defense of himself and includes the most famous parts of the text, namely his recounting of the Oracle at Delphi and his cross-examination of Meletus. The second part is the verdict, and the third part is the sentencing
The interpretation of Scripture and other essays by Benjamin Jowett( Book )

Philebus by Plato( Book )

5 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Tragedy and Comedy of Life, Seth Benardete focuses on the idea of the good in what is widely regarded as one of Plato's most challenging and complex dialogues, the Philebus. Traditionally the Philebus is interpreted as affirming the doctrine that the good resides in thought and mind rather than in pleasure or the body. Benardete challenges this view, arguing that Socrates vindicates the life of the mind over against the life of pleasure not by separating the two and advocating a strict asceticism, but by mixing pleasure and pain with mind in such a way that the philosophic life emerges as the only possible human life. Benardete combines a probing and challenging commentary that subtly mirrors and illumines the complexities of this dialogue with the finest English translation of the Philebus yet available. The result is a work that will be of great value to classicists, philosophers, and political theorists alike

Cratylus by Plato( Book )

15 editions published between 1996 and 2008 in English and held by 4 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 under the teachings of Socrates, Plato's works are among the world's greatest literature. Cratylus is of opinion that a name is either a true name or not a name at all. He is unable to conceive of degrees of imitation; a word is either the perfect expression of a thing, or a mere inarticulate sound. Of the real Cratylus we know nothing, except that he is recorded by Aristotle to have been the friend or teacher of Plato
Euthydemus by Plato( Book )

15 editions published between 1995 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Introduction: ""Neglected for ages by Plato scholars, the Euthydemus has in recent years attracted renewed attention.  The dialogue, in which Socrates converses with two sophists whose techniques of verbal manipulation utterly disengage language from any grounding in stable meaning or reality, is in many ways a dialogue for our times. Contemporary questions of language and power permeate the speech and action of the dialogue. The two sophists-Euthydemus and his brother Dionysodorus-explicitly question whether speech has any connection to truth and specifically whether anything can be
