    Timaeus. How thankful I am, Socrates, that I have arrived at last, and, like a weary traveller after a long journey, may be at rest! And I pray the being who always was of old, and has now been by me revealed, to grant that my words may endure in so far as they have been spoken truly and acceptably to him; but if unintentionally I have said anything wrong, I pray that he will impose upon me a. Excerpt from "Timaeus" by Plato c - c BC reprinted from "The Antediluvian World" by Ignatius Donnelly "But in addition to the gods whom you have mentioned, I would specially invoke Mnemosyne; for all the important part of what I have to tell is dependent on her favor, and if I can recollect and recite enough of what was said by the priests, and brought hither by Solon, I doubt not that.

    Plato. The role of the World-Artificer, the “Demiurge,” is similar to that of the Anaxagorean “Nous” (Reason). He is not a Creator, in the strict sense; that is to say, he does not make things ex nihilo but only imposes order and system on pre-existing Chaos. Nor does he continue to act directly, in propria persona, throughout the process of world-building, but, at a certain stage. Anybody interested in the big questions arising from the Timaeus (e.g., the nature of the demiurge, the temporal character of the creation story, the connection between the cosmology and the Atlantis story, the role of the receptacle, the status of the forms) will want to engage (if also sometimes struggle) with this book. While Broadie's.   I’ve known for a long time that Plato discusses Atlantis and its fall. However, I never knew the context. After watching some videos on Atlantis theory, I decided to grab a copy of Timaeus and Critias and have a look at what Plato actually says about the city.. Plato says that Atlantis was a city built on desires by the God Poseidon and his son Atlas.

    In his opening speech, Timaeus (Timaeus 27db1) argues that the cosmos must be the product of a craftsman looking to an eternal his premises seem at best to justify only that the world could have been made by such a craftsman. This paper seeks to clarify Timaeus’ justification for his stronger conclusion.
