L’introduction problématique du Timée (17a-27a)

  • Nathalie Nercam Independent scholar

Abstract

The purpose of this article is to reconsider the Timaeus’ introduction (17a-27a) in order to show that Plato invites the reader to demystify the discourses of the Greek political elite of the fifth century. Dreamy land, in the autochtony myth, or ocean of nightmare, in Atlantis, khôra is the aporia of the story of Critias. Compared with Republic, this khôra is in fact the phobic projection of the aristocracy’s annoyed desires.
