Conference on Timaeus

leave a comment »

I blogged in passing the Platonic dialogue Timaeus, and now, through this post, I discover a 2007 conference on it. The abstracts of the presentations make it sound quite interesting. Maybe it’s time to reread it. But first to finish the Aubrey/Maturin series—just finished The Thirteen-Gun Salute last night (or, rather, this morning).

Here’s the text of the dialogue, if you’re interested. I mentioned before that one point of the dialogue is that the universe is ultimately mathematical objects, and notice the opening words of the dialogue.
