October 15th, 2007 by Ross Scaife

Cathal Woods, philosophy professor at Virginia Wesleyan University, writes:

together with a student, i have prepared new translations of plato’s euthyphro, apology (which we’re calling “socrates’ defense”), crito, and the death scene from phaedo. they’re free to all under a creative commons license.
they’re available via

or directly,

and

the last being an omnibus containing all 4, together with front matter.

Nice! It’s great to see OA taking hold in the humanities.
