Fisica platonica e teoria dell'immagine

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Starting out from the distinction between a "proper" notion of Being and a metphorical one in Plato, this paper aims at investigating the connection between Plato's ontology (as developed in dialogues as "Parmenides", "Sophist" and "Philebus") and his Physics (as described in the "Timaeus"). The author recognizes as central points of this connection the role of the causative model in both the creation (by God) and perception (by man) of the phyiscal world and the notion of "image" as the key to interpretate the bond between physical and meta-physical space in Plato.
