On Plato's Timaeus by Calcidius( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and Latin and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Few works of philosophy have enjoyed the prestige of the Timaeus, the dialogue in which Plato set out to provide a rational account, cast in the form of a cosmological "myth," of the universe and humankind. Calcidius translated and commented on Plato's Timaeus. Chronology does little to explain Calcidius' work, which so falls outside the scope of any developmental account of "Middle-" and "Neoplatonism." Calcidius' identification of the Platonic Receptacle with Aristotelian Matter and his various Stoicising impulses reflect traditions that had altered ancient perspectives on the Timaeus, but it is difficult to ascertain the degree to which his philosophical points of reference are Numenius, Alcinous, and Apuleius in the second century CE as opposed to Plotinus, Porphyry, and Iamblichus in the third to fourth. This may have contributed to the later fascination with Calcidius, especially during the "renaissance" of the twelfth century, when his translation and commentary presented themselves as a coalescence of ideas frozen outside of time and space. From Calcidius twelfth-century readers may have learned how ancient opinions on the World Soul, Fate, and Matter lined up conceptually, but they got from him no reliable means of disentangling the historical descent or intersections of those opinions. Yet Calcidius proved to be a fundamental source of inspiration for thinkers such as Bernardus Silvestris, William of Conches, and Alan of Lille, who set out to make new sense of the world, its architecture, the forces that animate it, and our place within it."--Provided by publisher

Commentaire au Timée de Platon by Calcidius( Book )

15 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in French and Latin and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"À la fin du IVe siècle, un certain Calcidius, qui reste encore inconnu, a traduit et commenté les pages du Timée de Platon concernant la fabrication de l’âme et du corps du monde et de l’homme. Dans ce vaste ensemble de 355 chapitres, un premier tiers offre une exégèse centrée sur les sciences de l’époque, le reste présentant une allure plus philosophique. Étonnant recueil – unique dans toute la littérature latine – de théories scientifiques autrement inconnues, le commentaire de Calcidius occupe de surcroît une place centrale dans la transmission des théories philosophiques de l’Antiquité au Moyen Âge et à la Renaissance. Ce fut, pour tout le Moyen âge occidental, le seul moyen, avec les traductions de Cicéron, d’avoir un accès en latin à une interprétation médio-platonicienne du Timée de Platon, le seul récit païen pouvant faire concurrence à celui de la Genèse. Les quelques deux cents copies – dont l’une a été annotée de la main même de Pétrarque (Paris, BnF 6280) et une autre de celle de Marsile Ficin en 1454 (Milan, Ambr. S.14, Sup.) – témoignent de l’intérêt durable suscité par ce commentaire, de l’influence profonde que cette œuvre exerça sur la construction du platonisme médiéval et de son usage comme clé herméneutique dans l’exégèse biblique"--Publisher's website

Traducción y comentario del Timeo de Platón by Calcidius( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in Spanish and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Calcidius (c. 4th c. AD) was for centuries one of the few sources bringing Plato's philosophy to European intellectuals. In spite of his undoubted literary talent, he has been ignored by manuals of Latin literature; in spite of the original thought with which he brings together the essential elements of Middle Platonic philosophy, he is treated very briefly in most histories of ancient philosophy. This volume, containing the first translation into Spanish of Calcidius' edition of and commentary on Plato's Timaeus, is intended to reintroduce Calcidius' important contributions to literature and philosophy
