Abstract

Both an ideal entrée for beginning readers and a solid text for scholars, the second edition of Peter Kalkavage’s acclaimed translation of Plato’s Timaeus brings enhanced accessibility to a rendering well known for its faithfulness to the original text.

An extensive essay offers insights into the reading of the work, the nature of Platonic dialogue, and the cultural background of the Timaeus. Appendices on music, astronomy, and geometry provide additional guidance. A brief outline of the themes of the work, a detailed glossary, and a selected bibliography are also included.
