Satis for what it is ! A reasonable translation.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Timaeus and Critias (Kindle Edition)
Timaeus was never one of Plato's crowd pullers ! though very influential with later mathematical-mystical thinkers. There are some
parts of general interest however, and this book offers the chance to read these, and as much of the more convoluted matter as
pleases you, in clear English, without any financial investment that hurts ! I read it 55 years ago for exams, more fun this time !!
For easier Plato (with intriguing picture of Socrates) you can try The Apology,, The Symposium, the first parts of The Phaedo,,
and the Republic itself. (They raise lots of questions and challenges for the thoughtful reader)..
