Inhaltsangabe: In recent years, Plato?s Timaeus has recaptured the interest of scholars, sparking an exploration of the astonishing influence this work has had on a wide range of intellectual traditions. Plato?s Timaeus as Cultural Icon brings together a group of leading experts from Canada, the United States, and Europe to examine the reception of Plato?s Timaeus throughout history, as well as its impact on major intellectual and cultural traditions.
Gretchen J. Reydams-Schils?s enlightening introduction tackles the issue of why the Timaeus has enjoyed such tremendous cultural status and sets the stage for the many topics covered in this volume, which include an assessment of the Timaeus?s influence on Plato?s successors, an examination of how it became connected to traditions of sacred texts, an analysis of the ?mind-body problem,? the tradition of music and its relation to philosophy, the cultural impact of Calcidius?s Latin translation of the work, and the interaction between the Timaeus and Islamic philosophy. As a collaborative effort of expert philosophers, classicists, and historians, this remarkable book serves as a wonderful starting point and research tool for anyone with an interest in Plato?s Timaeus.
Inhaltsangabe: Thirteen essays, from a conference held at the University of Notre Dame in 2000, argue that Timaeus , Plato's Genesis tale, has had more of an impact on western culture than any other of his works. Specialised and often technical essays examine the influence of Plato's creation mythology on classical and medieval religion and philosophy. Contributors focus in particular on Cicero, early Christianity, early Arabic philosophy, Renaissance science, Kepler's astronomy and German idealism. Not all Greek and Latin is translated.
