Plato’s Cosmology

No Comment - Post a comment

Cosmology (the Timaeus):

n world comes from

1. archetypes - forms

2. Demiurge - divine mind

3. receptacle (matter) - formless and shapeless

n the Demiurge takes the formless receptacle and shapes it into a world of particulars using the forms as the archetypes

n a “necessity” or inertia in the receptacle resists the forms (explanation of the disorder found in the world)
