Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Plato studied under Socrates and was Aristotle's teacher. Together these three Greeks developed the basis of philosophical thinking for the entire Western world. Plato was also a writer, mathematician, and founder of the Academy in Athens, which was the first university in Europe. Timaeus is a Socratic dialogue written in 360 BC. Timaeus begins by distinguishing between the physical and eternal words. The physical world changes and therefore is subject to opinions and unreasonable sensation. The eternal world never changes. Plato suggests that since nothing happens without a cause then the universe must have been created by God. God created a perfect world and then man altered it.
