As Samuel Scolnicov points out in this collection, many other philosophers have employed literary techniques to express their ideas, just as many literary authors have exemplified philosophical ideas in their narratives, but for no other philosopher does the mode of expression play such a vital role in their thought as it does for Plato. And yet, even after two thousand years there is still no consensus about why Plato expresses his ideas in this distinctive style. The essays can be divided into three categories.
English Translations of Plato's Atlantis dialogues
Timaeus offers the reader a rhetorical display, not a philosophical dialogue. Ina stage-setting conversation, Socrates reviews his own previous days exposi-tion of the institutions of the ideal city apparently those of the Republic , butthe remainder of the work is taken up by Timaeus very long speech describingthe creation of the world. Other works in the Platonic corpus similarly consistof a single speech: not to mention the Apology, the same is true of Critias Timaeus incomplete companion piece and Menexenus. But Timaeusspeech is unique among them in having extensive philosophical content: herewe get philosophy, but grandiose and rhetorically elaborate cosmic theorizing,not the down-to-earth dialectical investigation of most of Platos philosophicalworks. For a parallel one has to look to Phaedrus, where Socrates twospeeches on erotic love, especially the second, similarly deck out philosophicaltheses in brilliant, image-studded rhetorical dress. Timaeus, who appears to be a dramatic invention of Platos, comes fromSouthern Italy, noted for its Greek mathematicians and scientists. He bases hiscosmology on the Platonic division, familiar for example from Phaedo andRepublic, between eternal, unchanging Forms and their unstable reflectionsin the physical, perceptible world of becoming.

And I pray the being who always was of old, and has now been by me revealed, to grant that my words may endure in so far as they have been spoken truly and acceptably to him; but if unintentionally I have said anything wrong, I pray that he will impose upon me a just retribution, and the just retribution of him who errs is that he should be set right.
