Review of Jonkers on the textual tradition of Plato's Timaeus and Critias

What is it about?

My review introduces the reader to the history of the textual transmission and textual criticism of two Platonic dialogues: the Timaeus and the Critias. It is against this background that I evaluate Jonkers study.

Why is it important?

My review will help people understand the history of these two particular texts, and the results of Jonkers' study of their history.
