In the Fall of 1999, after the completion of the class on “What Socrates Knew,” I began a nine lecture course on “The Myths of Plato: From the Creation of the World to the Sinking of Atlantis,” which dealt with the question of the relationship of philosophy and gave close readings to Plato’s Timaeus and Critias. Unfortunately, I do not have tapes of the second, third, and fourth lectures, and unless they come to light, I cannot bring out the whole course. But the first lecture does stand on its own, so I will release it in two parts.

    Very interesting, as I said, you dwarf hand-down my knowledge of Greek literature, however I do strongly disagree with a common thread I seem to discern in this and other previous lectures like this one:
    That is, even pantheist pre-classic philosophers like Anaximenes are NOT cognitive elitists (I’ve learned the word in this very forum) trying to break free from the constraints of Homeric mythology, in other words they’re no Ancient World counterpart to Spinoza. Rather, they were trying to figure out a religion in the Latin sense, a new sense of piety which could be embraced by the post-homeric society which now found the whims of Homeric Gods embarrassing and demeaning. Anaximenes’ aloof Gods are indeed a reaction to Homer’s busybody Gods.
