Plato's Parmenides by Plato( )

14 editions published between 1907 and 2010 in English and German and held by 2,364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This work presents an illuminating new translation of the dialogue together with an extensive introduction and running commentary, giving a unified explanation of the Parmenides and integrating it firmly within the context of Plato's metaphysics and methodology." "Scolnicov shows that in the Parmenides Plato addresses the most serious challenge to his own philosophy: the monism of Parmenides and the Eleatics. In addition to providing a serious rebuttal to Parmenides, Plato here reformulates his own theory of forms and participation, arguments that are central to the whole of Platonic thought, and provides these concepts with a rigorous logical and philosophical foundation. In Scolnicov's analysis, the Parmenides emerges as an extension of ideas from Plato's middle dialogues and as an opening to the later dialogues." "This translation follows the Greek closely, and the commentary affords the Greekless reader a clear understanding of how Scolnicov's interpretation emerges from the text. This volume will provide a valuable introduction and framework for understanding a dialogue that continues to generate lively discussion today."--Jacket
The laws of Plato by Plato( )

55 editions published between 1832 and 2018 in 7 languages and held by 2,362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Laws, Plato describes in detail a comprehensive system of legislation in a small agricultural utopia he named Magnesia. His laws not only govern crime and punishment, but also form a code of conduct for all aspects of life in his ideal state - from education, sport and religion to sexual behaviour, marriage and drinking parties. Plato sets out a plan for the day-to-day rule of Magnesia, administered by citizens and elected officials, with supreme power held by a Council."--Jacket

20 editions published between 1538 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 1,906 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A dialogue between Socrates and Menexenus (not to be confused with Socrates's son Menexenus). Most of the dialogue consists of a funeral oration"--Provided by publisher
Crito by Plato( )

14 editions published between 1896 and 2002 in 5 languages and held by 1,905 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
Alcibiades I by Plato( )

19 editions published between 1736 and 2017 in 6 languages and held by 1,905 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Alcibiades I" by Plato is a discussion between Socrates and Alcibiades about the corruption of the youth in Athens
The Apology, Phaedo, and Crito of Plato by Plato( Book )

152 editions published between 1739 and 2018 in 16 languages and held by 1,894 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 intellectual freedom
The seventh letter by Plato( )

14 editions published between 1996 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,834 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The dialogues of Plato by Plato( Book )

113 editions published between 1779 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,690 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presents a translation of the Greek philosopher's works
Timaeus and Critias by Plato( )

10 editions published between 1838 and 2008 in English and Greek, Ancient and held by 1,508 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Timaeus, one of Plato's acknowledged masterpieces, is an attempt to construct the universe and explain its contents by means of as few axioms as possible. The result is a brilliant, bizarre, and surreal cosmos - the product of the rational thinking of a creator god and his astral assistants, and of purely mechanistic causes based on the behaviour of the four elements. At times dazzlingly clear, at times intriguingly opaque, this was state-of-the-art science in the middle of the fourth century BC. The world is presented as a battlefield of forces that are unified only by the will of God, who had to do the best he could with recalcitrant building materials"--Page 4 of cover
Theaetetus by Plato( Book )

31 editions published between 1839 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 1,487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A systematic treatment of the question, ""What is knowledge?"", this masterpiece from Plato's later period features a dialogue between Socrates and his student, Theaetetus. Translation by Francis M. Cornford, who provides extensive commentaries
Apology, Crito, Phaedo, Symposium, Republic by Plato( Book )

Cover-title: Five great dialogues
The last days of Socrates by Plato( Book )

31 editions published between 1954 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 1,441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Plato's account of Socrates' trial and death (399 BCE) is one of the most significant moments in western literature and philosophy. In these four works Plato illustrates Socrates' fundamental belief in the necessity for us to èxamine ourselves and others', portraying the man himself living and dying by his philosophy. In Euthyphro, Socrates debates the nature of pìety'; in Apology, he defends himself in court against the charge of impiety; in Crito, now in prison and awaiting execution, he considers whether escape can be justified; finally, in Phaedo, he reflects on the ethics of suicide, describes his intellectual history, and mounts a series of arguments for supposing that we continue to exist as intelligent beings after death. Then, after a magnificent description of the earth and its regions, he drinks the hemlock and dies
Protagoras by Plato( )

124 editions published between 1828 and 2018 in 14 languages and held by 1,419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the fifth century BC professional educators, the sophists, travelled the Greek world claiming to teach success in public and private life. In this dialogue Plato shows the pretensions of the leading sophist, Protagoras, challenged by the critical arguments of Socrates. From criticism of the educational aims and methods of the sophists the dialogue broadens out to consider the nature of the good life, and the role of pleasure and intellect in the context of that life. -- from publisher description

Gorgias by Plato( Book )

107 editions published between 1828 and 2015 in 12 languages and held by 1,260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Though Gorgias was a Sicilian teacher of oratory, the dialogue is more concerned with ethics than with the art of public speaking. The ability, professed particularly by the Sophists, to make the worse cause appear the better, struck Plato as the source of all corruption. The dialogue's chief interest lies, not in Gorgias' courteous outline of his art, but in the clash between Socrates, the true philosopher, and Callicles, a young Athenian of the stamp of Alcibiades, who brashly maintains that might is right
