Plato's vision: One reality, two worlds, three natures?

Plato's view of the universe as "beautiful, living, intelligent and well-ordered" explored.

In the Timaeus Plato presents us with some of his most fundamental teachings – the idea that the material world is shaped by immaterial ideas, and that the manifested universe is a living thing expressing in the unfolding of time an eternal paradigm which he calls "animal itself". We will read a series of short passages from the dialogue and discuss the possible validity of this worldview.

A downloadable file (PDF) of the text we will use is available on the Prometheus Trust's website - go the "London Monday Evenings" page.

No previous experience of formal philosophy is required.

Entrance in free, but donations between £3-5 will be welcomed.
