Abstract:

Professor Broadie identifies for us a number of features of the account of creation in the Timaeus:

(1) The cosmos-the ordered universe in which we live is to be accounted for as a whole.

(2) The cosmos is supremely beautiful and good.

(3) The cause of the cosmos is non-physical, intelligent, good, and divine, i.e. God.

(4) God worked on pre-existent matter.

(5) God was copying an eternal paradigm.

It would, I think, be very widely agreed that these five theses are true of Plato's account and pick out its significant points.
