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

313 editions published between 1853 and 2011 in English and held by 7,268 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

Protagoras by Plato( Book )

30 editions published between 1956 and 2008 in English and held by 533 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
Symposium by Plato( Book )

35 editions published between 1948 and 2015 in English and held by 328 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
Plato by Plato( Book )

19 editions published between 1942 and 2013 in English and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the indisputable father of Western philosophy, Socrates stands as the archetype of free inquiry and intellectual honesty throughout history. He dared to explore the minds of men, to analyse the content of cherished beliefs, and to distinguish knowledge and truth from opinion. This philosophical gadfly irritated the people of Athens, who tried him for corrupting their youth, and subsequently sentenced him to death for his "crime". In these four short works by Plato, we come to experience the full range of Socrates' penetrating mind. In the "Euthyphro", Socrates searches after the truth about the nature of piety, even as he makes his way to Athens to answer an indictment levelled against him. "The Apology" recounts Socrates' attempt to defend himself against the charge of impiety. Once condemned, Socrates finds himself imprisoned to await death. "The Crito" captures his views on his relationship with the state and what each has a right to expect from the other. Finally, the "Phaedo" recalls the death scene as Socrates discusses the nature of the soul and immortality just before succumbing to the hemlock. -- Back cover
The laws by Plato( Book )

18 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 138 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 )

20 editions published between 1947 and 2008 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Select passages from the theological writings of Benjamin Jowett ... by Benjamin Jowett( Book )

8 editions published between 1902 and 1968 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Crito by Plato( Book )

13 editions published between 1940 and 2008 in English and held by 32 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 )

19 editions published between 1947 and 2008 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Theaetetus by Plato( Book )

20 editions published between 1949 and 2008 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the Theaetetus Plato made a pioneering contribution to one of the central problems of Western philosophy
Gorgias by Plato( Book )

18 editions published between 1892 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 21 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
Charmides, or temperance by Plato( )

11 editions published between 2001 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 17 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
The life and letters of Benjamin Jowett, M.A., master of Balliol College, Oxford by Evelyn Abbott( Book )

Apology by Plato( Book )

11 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This historically renowned oration was presented by Socrates in his own defense after he had been formally accused of corrupting the youth of Athens. It is not an apology in the traditional sense of expressing remorse for one's actions; rather, Socrates' Apology (recorded by his faithful student and protege Plato) is a succinct and compelling defense of the brilliant philosopher's worldview, lifestyle, and teaching methods. A rewarding read for fans of philosophy and supporters of
