Lysias by Lysias( Book )

96 editions published between 1930 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 1,480 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

LYSIAS (c.458- C.380 B.C.), born at Athens, son of wealthy Cephalus of Syracuse settled in Attica, is said to have gone after his father's death to Greek Thurii when it was founded in Italy in 444, and to have begun his studies in the new art of Rhetoric there. After the Athenian disaster in Sicily in 413, Lysias and his brother Polemarchus and others were expelled from Thurii in 413 and became 'metrics' (resident aliens) of a privileged kind in Attica, Polemarchus in Athens, Lysias in Peiraeus where they inherited their father's shileld-factory. Both being loyal supporters of democracy, Polemarchus fell victim to the 'Thirty Tyrants' in 404 but Lysias escaped and helped the democrats at Athens with shields and money. After one political speech in accusation of Ertosthenes (one of the Thirty) in 405, he became at Athens a busy professional speech-writer for the law-courts. At the Olympic festival of 388 he denounced, with riotous results, the costly display of the embassy sent by Dionysius I of Syracuse and the domination of Sicily by Dionysus. The surviving speeches (about thirty complete out of a very much larger number) -- fluent, simple and graceful in style yet vivid in description, and in expression of character, suggest that Lysias, though an over-passionate partisan was a gentle humorous man loyal to the Athenian democracy. We see him in the art of oratory young and fresh

Lysis ; Symposium ; Gorgias by Plato( Book )

70 editions published between 1925 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 510 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The "Apology" (not a dialogue), "Crito, Euthyphro, " and the unforgettable "Phaedo" relate the trial and death of Socrates and propound the immortality of the soul. In the famous "Symposium" and "Phaedrus, " written when Socrates was still alive, we find the origin and meaning of love. "Cratylus" discusses the nature of language. The great masterpiece in ten books, the "Republic, " concerns righteousness (and involves education, equality of the sexes, the structure of society, and abolition of slavery). Of the six so-called dialectical dialogues "Euthydemus" deals with philosophy; metaphysical "Parmenides" is about general concepts and absolute being; "Theaetetus" reasons about the theory of knowledge. Of its sequels, "Sophist" deals with not-being; "Politicus" with good and bad statesmanship and governments; "Philebus" with what is good. The "Timaeus" seeks the origin of the visible universe out of abstract geometrical elements. The unfinished "Critias" treats of lost Atlantis
Laches ; Protagoras ; Meno ; Euthydemus by Plato( Book )

55 editions published between 1924 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

PLATO, the great philosopher of Athens, son of Ariston, was born in 427 B.C. In early manhood admirer of Socrates, he later founded the famous school of philosophy in the grove Academus. Much else recorded of his life is uncertain; that he left Athens for a time after Socrates' execution is probable; that later he went to Cyrene, Egypt, and Sicily is possible; that he was wealthy is likely; that he was critical of 'advanced' democracy is obvious. He lived to be 80 years old. Linguistic tests including those of computer science still try to establish the order of his extant philosophical dialogues, written in splendid prose and revealing Socrates' mind fused with Plato's thought. In Laches, Charmides, and Lysis, Socrates and others discuss separate ethical conceptions. Protagoras, Io, and Meno discuss whether righteousness can be taught. In Gorias, Socrates is estranged from his city's thought, and his fate is impending. The Apology (not a dialogue), Crito, Euthyphro, and the unforgettable Phaedo relate to the trial and death of Socrates and propound the immortality of the soul. In the famous Symposium and Phaedrus, written when Socrates was still alive, we find the origin and meaning of love. Cratylus discusses the nature of language and the great masterpiece in 10 books, the Republic, concerns righteousness (and involves education, equality of the sexes, socialism, communism, and even abolition of slavery). Of the 6 so called 'dialectical" dialogues Euthydemus deals with philosophy; meta-physical Parmenides about general concepts and absolute being; Theaetetus reasons about the theory of knowledge; of its sequels, Sophist deals with not-being; Politicus with good and bad statesmanship and governments; Philebus with what is good. The Timaeus seeks the origin of the visible universe out of abstract geometrical elements. The unfinished Critias treats of lost Atlantis. Unfinished also is Plato's last work of the 12 books Laws (Socrates is absent from it), a critical discussion of principles of law which Plato thought the Greeks might accept. Of a dozen other extant dialogues and also some letters a few may be genuine. Six other extant dialogues have been rejected as spurious since ancient times
