The Complete Works of Plato

Plato (428/427–348/347 BCE) was a Greek philosopher and mathematician of the Classic Age who founded the Academy of Athens. Noted as a student of Socrates, Plato has distinguished himself as one of the founders of Western philosophy by recording the teachings of his master and his own philosophies in 35 dialogues and 13 letters (some are disputed as spurious). However, this collection features only 25 authentic works from the reproduced source.

Benjamin Jowett is credited for translating these works into English. While there are many websites online where one may find digital copies of his translations, the source of the copies reproduced for this publication may be found at the online library of the University of Adelaide in South Australia, usable under the freedoms specified by a Creative Commons License (

    This, dear Crito, is the voice which I seem to hear murmuring in my ears, like the sound of the flute in the ears of the mystic; that voice, I say, is humming in my ears, and prevents me from hearing any other.
    Jan Nohas quoted4 years ago
    SOCRATES: Leave me then, Crito, to fulfil the will of God, and to follow whither he leads.
