On Plato’s Timaeus Dumbarton Oaks Medieval LibraryRt is broadly devoted to the architecture of the world to its intelligible structure The second delves into On Plato’s PDFEPUB or the nature of the living creatures that inhabit it This basic division subseuently informed the sense of macrocosm and microcosm—of the world and our place in it—which is prevalent in western. This edition of Calcidius work on Plato's Timaeus is valuable on multiple groundsStudents of Platonic philosophy and as well as of medieval philosophy will find this work to be of significant value it contains Calcidius' Latin text as well as an English version of his translation of important parts of the Timaeus a translation which exerted an influence on Western Europe for almost a millenniumIt also contains Calcidius' commentary on the Timaeus in both the Latin original and English translation which should be of interest to philosophers for the intrinsic value of Calcidius' views on a number of important subjects in Platonic and Pythagorean philosophy number the origin of soul the nature of matter as well as time the different kinds of living beings etcThe index useful but not exhaustive as is the case with most indexes For instance the sections where daimons daemons are treated are indicated in the index while Calcidius' definition of daimons daemons in section 135 pp 342 343 of the commentary is not specifically listed as such in the index Calcidius' definition is interesting in comparison with that of Apuleius On the God of Socrates XIII 148 and with the separate work which considers the portion of Calcidius' commentary on the Timaeus which deals specifically with his treatment of daimons Calcidius on Demons by J Den Boeft Brill 1977As with the Loeb series Harvard University Press is to be commended for its excellent Dumbarton Oaks series with their facing texts in Latin original and English translation For those whose Latin is not proficient as mine is not it is still very helpful to be able to compare the Latin original of significant passages with the English translation especially with the help of a good Latin dictionary and the preservation and proliferation of philosophical and religious texts in the original language is a great service to posterityThe volumes in the Dumbarton Oaks series are also both beautifully bound and extremely reasonable in price I have enjoyed the Loeb series especially the Greek texts for many years now and I'm glad to add this fine work from the Dumbarton Oaks series to my library
