The dialogues of Plato by Plato( Book )
187 editions published between 1767 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 3,063 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 )
338 editions published between 1827 and 2015 in 17 languages and held by 2,838 libraries worldwide

The last days of Socrates by Plato( Book )
22 editions published between 1954 and 2012 in English and Chinese and held by 1,522 libraries worldwide
Toward the end of The Apology, Socrates makes a statement that resonates even with those who have never read Plato: "I tell you that ... examining both myself and others is really the very best thing that a man can do, and that life without this sort of examination is not worth living" (p. 63). The Apology, Euthyphro, Crito, and Phaedo, which depict Socrates' activities just prior to his trial until his death, hold a central place among the works of Plato. They sum up the philosophical career of Socrates, protagonist of most of the Platonic dialogues. But this summing up does not imply the end of the examinations Socrates pursued. On the contrary, during his last days, Socrates rigorously continued the kind of inquiries he had pursued all his life, even at the risk of execution, and he enjoined his companions to continue them when he was gone. -- Publisher description
Gorgias by Plato( Book )
155 editions published between 1857 and 2014 in 11 languages and held by 1,385 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

16 editions published between 1844 and 2014 in English and Greek, Ancient [to 1453] and held by 760 libraries worldwide
In the Theaetetus Plato made a pioneering contribution to one of the central problems of Western philosophy
Crito by Plato( Book )
230 editions published between 1541 and 2016 in 18 languages and held by 596 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
Plato's Parmenides by Plato( Book )
5 editions published between 1868 and 2003 in English and German and held by 545 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
Timaeus and Critias by Plato( Book )
5 editions published between 1929 and 2008 in English and held by 424 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
Cratylus by Plato( Book )
113 editions published between 1770 and 2015 in 13 languages and held by 374 libraries worldwide
"Thought by some to be the highest point reached by the science of language in antiquity. It deals with the importance of dialectic and the contrast between Heracliteanism and Eleaticism"--Provided by publisher
The laws of Plato by Plato( Book )
28 editions published between 1921 and 2013 in English and Greek, Ancient [to 1453] and held by 197 libraries worldwide
The great Athenian philosopher Plato was born in 427 BCE and lived to be eighty. Acknowledged masterpieces among his works are the Symposium, which explores love in its many aspects, from physical desire to pursuit of the beautiful and the good, and the Republic, which concerns righteousness and also treats education, gender, society, and slavery
Lysis by Plato( Book )
30 editions published between 1551 and 2013 in 8 languages and held by 153 libraries worldwide
"Socrates, Lysis, and Menexenus try to define friendship. The dialogue leads to a confession of ignorance"--Provided by publisher
Menexenus by Plato( Book )
20 editions published between 1538 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 31 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
Alcibiades I by Plato( Book )
15 editions published between 1736 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 12 libraries worldwide
Charmides, or temperance by Plato( file )
14 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 4 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
