Joining The Dots

I have now published my new book, Joining The Dots, which offers a fresh look at the Atlantis mystery. I have addressed the critical questions of when, where and who, using Plato's own words, tempered with some critical thinking and a modicum of common sense.

Cornford, Francis MacDonald

Francis Macdonald Cornford (1874-1943) was an English classical scholar and a Professor of AncientCornford Philosophy at Cambridge and published a number of books on his subject.

In 1935, he published a translation of Plato’s Timaeus including a commentary with the full title of Plato’s Cosmology: The Timaeus of Plato Translated with a Running Commentary[852].

*Cornford was a confirmed Atlantis sceptic, remarking that “serious scholars now agree that Atlantis probably owed its existence entirely to Plato’s imagination.”*

 

Kessinger Publishing issued a reprint of his commentary as recently as 2005.
