Plato extended Socrates's inquiries to his students, one of the most famous being Aristotle. Plato's The Republic is an enduring work, discussing justice, the importance of education, and the qualities needed for rulers to succeed. Plato felt governors must be philosophers so they may govern wisely and effectively. Plato founded the Academy, an educational institution dedicated to pursuing philosophic truth. The Academy lasted well into the 6th century . and is the model for all western universities. Its formation is along the lines Plato laid out in The Republic.

Without regard to the description of Plato, and without a suspicion that the whole narrative is a fabrication, interpreters have looked for the spot in every part of the globe, America, Arabia Felix, Ceylon, Palestine, Sardinia, Sweden. No one knew better than Plato how to invent ‘a noble li. Observe (1) the innocent declaration of Socrates, that the truth of the story is a great advantage: (2) the manner in which traditional names and indications of geography are intermingled (‘Why, here be truths!’)

First published in Plato, Complete Works, Donald Zeyl's translation of Timaeus is presented here with his substantial introductory essay, which situates the dialogue in the development of Greek science, discusses points of contemporary interest in the Timaeus, deals at length with long-standing and current issues of interpretation, and provides a consecutive commentary on the work as a whole. Includes an analytic table of contents and a select bibliography.

Amazon seems to have linked together all the comments on the Timaeus (no matter the translator). It is very possible that you are reading this under a different translation, not the Jowett translation as the commenter suggests. In any case, I recommend the Donald Zeyl translation. It DOES have Stephanus numbering -- very appropriate for class discussions and scholarly work. In my opinion, it is the best English translation available -- and I've spent years working through the text in Greek. Another translation that is nice to have around for alternative readings of key passages (all translation involves interpretation) is Peter Kalkavage's.

This book is for a philosophy course. It should be read and re read! Book came in excellent condition and a readable font.
Rare
The Kindle edition contains just the text of the dialogue: no notes, no commentary, no introduction.

Even at 99 cents, it seems overpriced.

Very interesting, but definitely should be read in conjunction with a commentary.
Groll
Wonderful dialogue, two of my favorites- leading into the Apology, Euthyphro & Meno. Definitely key to read before the Apology in order to fully understand. Delivered straight to my iphone, Mac & ipad.
