The aim of this journal is to promote international dialogue on Plato across different languages and scholarly approaches. The journal has been established by the International Plato Society, founded in 1989. The Society also holds triennial symposia and occasional additional activities and supports regional Plato Societies. It also sponsors the publication of scholarly books on Plato, in collaboration with Academia Verlag, Sankt Augustin. It is open to all Plato scholars world-wide to read this journal, to make responses to the papers (which should be sent to the Editor and are subject to editorial moderation), and, in due course, to submit papers for inclusion in the journal. The languages of the journal are those of the International Plato Society, namely English, French, German, Italian and Spanish.
Thanks to a great effort from our Publisher House, Coimbra University Press, the old volumes of our journal from the very first 2001 issue, are now available in the new format, with proper metadata and properly indexed.
The first 12 volumes of Plato Journal are gathered on line in the new website here.
