User database: Plato’s Works in English (update)

Written by Michael Hanel on August 23rd, 2006

Sorry for the lack of posting lately. I am in a life transition — moving back from the real world to the Seminary dorm life. However, I do want to post an update to Plato’s Works in English.

I will make no excuse for the deficiencies of this update to Plato’s Works in English. The text is pretty sloppy, but it is now available and better than nothing. The texts added are as follows: Sophist, Hippias Minor, Ion, Philebus, Menexenus, Statesman, Minos, Epinomis, Critias, Parmenides, Symposium, Phaedrus, Hippias Major, and Cliotphon.

You will notice numbers in the English portion of the text. These actually correspond to footnotes that have not yet been transferred into the version. Otherwise you can find the text notes via Perseus.

The source of the e-text is from Perseus’ public domain editions of Plato’s Works. The sources of the text itself is from the following:
Plato. Plato in Twelve Volumes, Vol. 12 translated by Harold N. Fowler. Cambridge, MA, Harvard University Press; London, William Heinemann Ltd. 1921.
and
Plato. Plato in Twelve Volumes, Vol. 9 translated by W.R.M. Lamb. Cambridge, MA, Harvard University Press; London, William Heinemann Ltd. 1925.
