  • Advanced Greek Reading: Plato’s Timaeus

    Plato’s Timaeus, with its colorful story of Atlantis and its account of the creation of the cosmos, is perhaps the most influential Platonic work in the subsequent philosophical and scientific tradition and in early Christianity. It is a fascinating work in its own right, with science conceived as a mere “likely story,” use of mathematics and teleological explanation, appeal to a divine creator, and metaphysics of separate immaterial forms and Receptacle (space or matter?) in which things around us, modeled on forms, come to be and perish. We will read the Timaeus in Greek and discuss its key ideas.
