Protagoras by Plato ( Book )
43 editions published between 1976 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,686 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the fifth century B.C. professional educators, or 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. The dialogue combines subtlety of argument with intricacy of dramatic construction and brilliant characterization. This translation achieves both precision and colloquial naturalness, while the Notes and Introduction set the arguments in their historical and philosophical context. - Publisher

From the beginning to Plato ( Book )
31 editions published between 1994 and 2003 in English and held by 737 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Volume 1 of the Routledge History of Philosophy covers one of the most remarkable periods in human thought. In the space of two and a half centuries, philosophy developed from quasi-mythological speculation to a state in which many of the most fundamental questions about the universe, the mind and human conduct had been vigorously pursued, and some of the most enduring masterworks of Western thought had been written. Supplemented with a chronology, a glossary of technical terms and an extensive bibliography, this volume will prove an invaluable and comprehensive guide to the beginnings of philosophy. R.G.

Simplicius by J. O Urmson ( )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this volume Simplicius deals with Aristotle's account of the Presocratics, and for many of them he is our chief or even sole authority. He quotes at length from Melissus , Parmenides and Zeno, sometimes from their original works but also from later writers from Plato onwards, drawing particularly on Alexander's lost commentary on Aristotle's Physics and on Porphyry . Much of his approach is just scholarly, but in places he reveals his Neoplatonist affiliation and attempts to show the basic agreement among his predecessors in spite of their apparent differences. This volume, part of the grou

Greek philosophers by C. C. W Taylor ( Book )
5 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This work contains essays on three of the most important figures in the history of Western philosophy: Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle. Almost uniquely for someone whose thought has been so influential, Socrates wrote nothing himself, and our knowledge of his philosophical opinions and method is derived mainly from the engaging and infuriating figure who appears in Plato's dialogues. The philosophy of Socrates and Plato is therefore closely interconnected, and the most powerful elements of Plato's mature thought form the basis of an interpretation of knowledge, reality and morality which is still held and debated by philosophers today. Aristotle's approach to these and other issues is in many ways directly opposed to that of Plato, and has been no less influential. His scientific explorations and systematic philosophical investigation have been instrumental in the development of Western philosophy as we know it, and he remains a pivotal figure in metaphysical and ethical thinking
