Classification of Plato's Dialogues

Plato was quite prolific and his work was written in the form of dialogues. We can order his dialogues according to the degree of maturity of the philosopher in the following stages:

Period of youth (393 B.C.-389 B.C.)

Fully influenced by Socrates, the dialogues deal mainly with ethical concerns.

  • Apology: Socrates' Speech at his trial

Transitional period (388 B.C.-385 B.C.)

Plato continues to reflect on political questions, in addition to dealing with the philosophy of language or introducing the Theory of reminiscence.

  • Gorgias: On rhetoric, politics and justice

Maturity period (385 B.C.-370 B.C.)

Plato develops the theory of Reminiscence, introduces the Theory of Ideas and deals with various myths.

Old age (369-347)

In addition to revising ideas from earlier stages, Plato introduces themes on medicine or nature. His pessimism grows in his later works and there is a greater presence of mystical-religious elements in his thought.
