Summary (Under construction) 
Key works (Under construction.) 
Introductions Ultimately, Plato's dialogues are arguably their own best introductions; as most readers will approach them in translation, we turn to these. Plato & Lamb 1925, the basis of the bilingual Loeb edition, remains quite useful; dynamic versions linked to current reference tools can be freely accessed at the several incarnations of the Perseus Project. (See record for links.) Recent readily-available editions without parallel Greek include the Hackett Plato & Woodruff 1983 (which contains analytical material omitted from the anthologized reprint of the translation), Plato & Saunders 1987, and Plato & Allen 1998. All three include introductory essays suitable for first-time readers of the dialogue. Bloom’s Straussian translation accompanies the reprint of his interpretive study in Plato & Pangle 1987. By contrast, Murray 1998 and Plato & Rijksbaron 2007 contain new critical editions of the Greek text, with commentary but without translations.

    Methodological and Metaphilosophical Lessons in Plato's Ion.Scott Forrest Aikin - 2017 - Journal of Ancient Philosophy 11 (1):1-19.
    From a detailed overview of Socrates’ exchange with Ion, light is shed on why Socrates’ method of elenchusrequires explicit accounts of concepts at issue. Moreover, Ion’s character is shown to provide an object lesson in the tempting vice of intellectual sycophancy.

    Performance E Élenkhos No Íon de Platão.Fernando Muniz - 2012 - Archai: Revista de Estudos Sobre as Origens Do Pensamento Ocidental 9:17-25.
    No Íon, a autoridade e a sabedoria de poetas e rapsodos são confrontadas por meios indiretos. O caráter oblíquo dessa estratégia impede o acesso direto ao conteúdo do diálogo e provoca inúmeros equívocos de leitura. Um fato contextual estimula mais ainda leituras equivocadas. A poesia tratada no Íon difere muito da forma como nós, modernos, a entendemos. Na Antiguidade grega, de base aural, a poesia era o modo privilegiado de conservação da tradição herdada, e permaneceu exercendo essa função capital até (...)

    Few recent events in the world of Platonic scholarship have caused more excitement than the publication of the initial volumes of R. E. Allen’s The Dialogues of Plato. Allen is on track to become the first scholar since Benjamin Jowett in the nineteenth century to produce a translation, with commentary, of all of Plato’s works. This feat is all the more impressive because Allen’s translations and comments thus far have been superb.

    Today Plato's Ion, thought one of his weaker works, gets little attention. But in the past it has had its admirers–in 1821, for example, Percy Bysshe Shelley translated it into English. Shelley, like other Romantic readers of Plato, was drawn to the Ion's account of divine inspiration in poetry. He recommended the dialogue to Thomas Love Peacock as a reply to the latter's Four Ages of Poetry: Shelley thought the Ion would refute Peacock's charge that poetry is useless in a (...)

    This reading of Plato's Ion shows that the philosophic action mimed and engendered by the dialogue thoroughly reverses its (and Plato's) often supposed philosophical point, revealing that poetry is just as defensible as philosophy, and only in the same way. It is by Plato's indirections we find true directions out: the war between philosophy and poetry is a hoax on Plato's part, and a mistake on the part of his literalist readers. The dilemma around which the dialogue moves is false, (...)

    The Dialogues of Plato, Volume 3: Ion, Hippias Minor, Laches, Protagoras. Plato & R. E. Allen - 1998 - Yale University Press.
    R.E. Allen's superb new translations of four Socratic dialogues—_Ion_, _Hippias Minor_, _Laches_, and _Protagoras_—bring these classic texts to life for modern readers. Allen introduces and comments on the dialogues in an accessible way, inviting the reader to reexamine the issues continually raised in Plato's works. In his detailed commentary, Allen closely examines the major themes and central arguments of each dialogue, with particular emphasis on _Protagoras_. He clarifies each of Plato's arguments and its refutation; places the themes in historical perspective; (...)

    Plato's Hesiod is a neglected topic, scholars having long regarded Plato's Homer as a more promising field of inquiry. My aim in this chapter is to demonstrate that this particular bias of scholarly attention, although understandable, is unjustified. Of no other dialogue is this truer than of the Ion.

    Plato's "Ion," despite its frail frame and traditionally modest status in the corpus, has given rise to large exegetical claims. Thus some historians of aesthetics, reading it alongside page 205 of the Symposium, have sought to identify in it the seeds of the post-Kantian notion of 'art' as non-technical making, and to trace to it the Romantic conception of the poet as a creative genius. Others have argued that, in the "Ion," Plato has Socrates assume the existence of a technē (...)

    Plato on Knowing a Tradition.George Rudebusch - 1988 - Philosophy East and West 38 (3):324-333.
    The success of relativism as a solution to skeptical problems depends upon the relativist's object of knowledge being invulnerable to the same skeptical doubts which we might have about the undiscovered world. Naturally, therefore, a traditional Platonic response is to argue that the relativist's selected object of knowledge cannot be known apart from knowledge of the undiscovered world. This indeed is the Platonic thesis of this article, as it applies to tradition. I begin by giving a philosophical analysis of tradition.

    In Plato's Ion & Meno, Socrates questions Ion, an actor who just won a major prize, about his ability to interpret the epic poetry of Homer. As the dialogue proceeds, the nature of human creativity emerges as a mysterious process and an unsolved puzzle. A similar discussion between Socrates and Meno probes the subject of ethics. Can goodness be taught? If it can, then we should be able to find teachers capable of instructing others about what is good and bad, (...)
