Based on Plato’s
Timaeus which integrated the pre-Socratic philosophy and was one of the most important cosmological works of classical philosophy, this paper will try to examine Plato’s conception of time which is said to be a moving likeness of eternity, generated by Demiurge, the God of Creation, and move according to number. Thus it connects with cosmos, space and movement as well as generation. Focused on Plato’s ontological and cosmological insight, this paper starts by trying to find out what the time is for Plato. Furthermore, based on the result of the preceding examination and following the ontological question of time concept in Plato’s philosophy, and via contemporary ontology, this paper will try to disclose how the time relates to space, soul and being as well as to the human being.
