Borders must be redrawn, and tens of millions of people must pick up and move.  Read more …

Socrates in Raphael’s The School of Athens with Hermocrates, Critias, and Timaeus

Author’s Note:

The following text is based on a transcript by V. S. of the introductory lecture of a course on Plato’s Timaeus and Critias. As usual, I have edited his transcript to remove excessive wordiness. Beyond that, I have incorporated here some materials from the transcript of part 2 of this lecture so that all the general material on myth in Plato appears in this text. All material specific to the Timaeus and Critias will appear in the transcript of part 2. Read more …
