Rivaud, Albert (L)

Albert Rivaud (1876-1955) was a French professor of philosophy and a classical scholar.  Ivar Lissner commenting[725.158] on the unfinished nature of theRIVAUD trilogy of Plato’s Dialogues which included Timaeus and the incomplete Critias, quotes Rivaud as saying that what we have contains “not only ancient traditions but also the results of the latest contemporary research carried out during Plato’s lifetime.”

Rivaud published a translation of the complete works of Plato in the early 1920’s. Volume 10 was Platon. Oeuvres complètes, Tome X.: Timèe, Critias. In it, according to James Bramwell[0195.91], he demonstrated that the term ‘orichalcum’ was known before Plato and not just an invention of his.

Later in his life Rivaud blotted his copybook with expressions of anti-Semitism and admiration for Hitler.
