Most widely held works by Plato
The republic by Plato( Book )
86 editions published between 1902 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 8,303 libraries worldwide
New translation of Plato's Republic
Gorgias by Plato( Book )
380 editions published between 1541 and 2014 in 18 languages and held by 5,073 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
Symposium by Plato( Book )
371 editions published between 1782 and 2015 in 14 languages and held by 2,886 libraries worldwide
A master piece of dramatic dialogue, Plato has few rivals, and in The Symposium he is at his most incisive and entertaining
The dialogues of Plato by Plato( Book )
26 editions published between 1892 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,649 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
The Apology, Phaedo, and Crito of Plato by Plato( Book )
58 editions published between 1907 and 2012 in English and held by 2,411 libraries worldwide
Three dialogues that epitomize the Socratic question-and-answer style turned philosophy, with the inevitable conclusion of his death in the Apology

27 editions published between 1941 and 1995 in 3 languages and held by 2,009 libraries worldwide
Contains five philosophical writings by the fifth century Athenian teacher of ethics, including "Apology," "Crito," "Phaedo," "Symposium," and "Republic."
Plato's theory of knowledge; the Theaetetus and the Sophist of Plato by Plato( Book )
99 editions published between 1935 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,714 libraries worldwide
Translated by the noted classical scholar Francis M. Cornford, this edition of two masterpieces of Plato's later period features extensive ongoing commentaries by Cornford that provide helpful background information and valuable insights. Both works pose eternal questions that keep these dialogs ever-relevant not only for students of philosophy but also for every reader and thinker. The Theatetus offers a systematic treatment of the question, "What is knowledge?" Most of the dialog takes place between Socrates and the student Theatetus. Among the answers they explore: knowledge as perception; knowledge as true belief; knowledge as true belief plus an account (i.e., a justified true belief); as well as variations on each of these answers. Like most Socratic dialogs, the Theatetus ends without a definitive answer - leaving the subject open for the reader's further consideration. In the Sophist, a related dialog, Plato redefines the term "sophist," which hitherto had connoted one who gives sophia (wisdom) to his disciples. Plato depreciated the term, and ever since, in philosophy, sophistry indicates the deceptive exploitation of linguistic ambiguities. The dialog follows Socrates' cross-examination of a self-proclaimed true philosopher, The Stranger, on the distinction between philosophers, statesmen, and sophists
Phaedrus by Plato( Book )
113 editions published between 1810 and 2014 in 11 languages and held by 1,636 libraries worldwide
"Phaedrus is widely recognized as one of Plato's most profound and beautiful works. It takes the form of a dialogue between Socrates and Phaedrus and its ostensible subject is love, especially homoerotic love. Socrates reveals it to be a kind of divine madness that can allow our souls to grow wings and soar to their greatest heights. Then the conversation changes direction and turns to a discussion of rhetoric, which must be based on truth passionately sought, thus allying it to philosophy. The dialogue closes by denigrating the value of the written word in any context, compared to the living teaching of a Socratic philosopher." "The shifts of topic and register have given rise to doubts about the unity of the dialogue, doubts which are addressed in the introduction to this volume. Full explanatory notes also elucidate issues throughout the dialogue that might puzzle a modern reader."--Jacket
The laws by Plato( Book )
80 editions published between 1917 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,396 libraries worldwide
The last of Plato's dialogues, distinguished from his earlier works by its more practical treatment of political problems. Though criticized in some detail by Aristotle in the "Politics", it undoubtedly exercised a profound influence upon his thought, and through him upon subsequent political theory
Parmenides' lesson : translation and explication of Plato's Parmenides by Plato( Book )
166 editions published between 1728 and 2014 in 14 languages and held by 1,101 libraries worldwide
"A dialogue in which old Parmenides advises the youthful Socrates to argue by the Zenonian method. This is one of Plato's dialectical dialogues"--Provided by publisher
Plato's Parmenides by Plato( Book )
27 editions published between 1868 and 2010 in English and German and held by 743 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 being of the beautiful : Plato's Theaetetus, Sophist, and Statesman by Plato( Book )
11 editions published between 1984 and 2006 in English and held by 503 libraries worldwide
The Being of the Beautiful collects Platos three dialogues, the Theaetetus, Sophist, and Statesmen, in which Socrates formulates his conception of philosophy while preparing for trial. Renowned classicist Seth Benardetes careful translations clearly illuminate the dramatic and philosophical unity of these dialogues and highlight Platos subtle interplay of language and structure. Extensive notes and commentaries, furthermore, underscore the trilogys motifs and relationships. "The translations are masterpieces of literalness. ... They are honest, accurate, and give the reader a wonderful s

Charmides, or temperance by Plato( Book )
15 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
