"Bakhouche and the publisher J. Vrin have done scholarship a real service. For a very reasonable price, they have dramatically enhanced the accessibility of a fascinating and neglected text. The Latin text is reliable and the translation marvelously clear..." -- Clifford Ando, University of Chicago, Bryn Mawr Classical Review (2012.09.20) A la fin du IVe siecle, un certain Calcidius, qui reste encore inconnu, a traduit et commente les pages du Timee de Platon concernant la fabrication de l'ame et du corps du monde et de l'homme. Dans ce vaste ensemble de 355 chapitres, un premier tiers offre une exegese centree sur les sciences de l'epoque, le reste presentant une allure plus philosophique. Etonnant recueil - unique dans toute la litterature latine - de theories scientifiques autrement inconnues, le commentaire de Calcidius occupe de surcroit une place centrale dans la transmission des theories philosophiques de l'Antiquite au Moyen Age et a la Renaissance. Ce fut, pour tout le Moyen age occidental, le seul moyen, avec les traductions de Ciceron, d'avoir un acces en latin a une interpretation medio-platonicienne du Timee de Platon, le seul recit paien pouvant faire concurrence a celui de la Genese. Les quelques deux cents copies - dont l'une a ete annotee de la main meme de Petrarque (Paris, BnF 6280) et une autre de celle de Marsile Ficin en 1454 (Milan, Ambr. S.14, Sup.) - temoignent de l'interet durable suscite par ce commentaire, de l'influence profonde que cette oeuvre exerca sur la construction du platonisme medieval et de son usage comme cle hermeneutique dans l'exegese biblique. On comprendra que la traduction en francais de ce document exceptionnel constitue un evenement considerable.
