Description

Timaeus is one of Plato's dialogues, mostly in the form of a long monologue. The work puts forward speculation on the nature of the physical world and human beings and is followed by the dialogue Critias. Participants in the dialogue include Socrates, Timaeus of Locri, Hermocrates, and Critias. Some scholars believe that it is not the Critias of the Thirty Tyrants who is appearing in this dialogue, but his grandfather, who is also named Critias.

Part of the Encyclopaedia Britannica’s Great Books of the Western World set.

This book has 162 pages in the PDF version, and was originally written c.360 B.C; this is a translation by Benjamin Jowett.
