Source of the translation[edit]

The first few paragraphs of the dialog proper are word per word identical with the translation by Benjamin Jowett. (Cf. Jowett's translation of Phaedrus at mirror.org) --Dan Polansky 07:15, 19 May 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Another source of interest is Jowett's translation of Phaedrus at libertyfund.org, from where the text including the introduction and analysis might have been taken. --Dan Polansky 13:59, 21 May 2007 (UTC)[reply]
The text at Wikisource is indeed identical to the one shown at libertyfund.org. I have verified this using (a) Emacs Diff function showing textual difference between any two files or texts, (b) the source of the page at Wikisource, and (c) the web page as pasted by FireFox into Emacs in a plain text form. --Dan Polansky 14:22, 21 May 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Book excerpt[edit]

The translation of Phaedrus, the notes and the introduction are only parts of the above mentioned book entitled The dialogues of Plato, vol. i. by Jowett. Should we split up the book thus without mentioning it? I'd rather incorporate the whole book, with Jowett as the author, to WS, and add direct links to Plato's various dialogues (with Plato as the author, Jowett as the translator).(De fideli (talk)), 6 January 2009
