Plato: The Republic by Plato

Book Description

First published in 2000, this translation of one of the great works of Western political thought is based on the assumption that when Plato chose the dialogue form for his writing, he intended these dialogues to sound like conversations - although conversations of a philosophical sort. In addition to a vivid, dignified and accurate rendition of Plato's text, the student and general reader will find many aids to comprehension in this volume: an introduction that assesses the cultural background to the Republic, its place within political philosophy, and its general argument; succinct notes in the body of the text; an analytical summary of the work's content; a full glossary of proper names; a chronology of important events; and a guide to further reading. The result is an accomplished and accessible edition of this seminal work, suitable for philosophers and classicists as well as historians of political thought at all levels.

Euthyphro. Apology. Crito. Phaedo by Plato Euthyphro. Apology. Crito. Phaedo, Hardback (June 2017)

Works in this volume recount the circumstances of Socrates trial and execution in 399 BC. Euthyphro attempts to define holiness; Apology is Socrates defense speech; in Crito he discusses justice and defends his refusal to be rescued from prison; Phaedo offers arguments for the immortality of the soul."

Apology and Related Dialogues by Plato Apology and Related Dialogues, Paperback (April 2016)

What survives of Socrates' philosophical thought are second-hand descriptions of his teachings and conversations - most famously, the accounts of his trial and execution composed by his friend, student, and philosophical successor, Plato. These dialogues contain some of the most fascinating and well-known arguments in Western philosophy.
