1. Francis Cornford provides a detailed analysis of mind and necessity's roles in the narrative of the Timaeus . Plato gives no less than three distinct genesis narratives: the birth of order from mind (29d-47e), the development of perceptible matter from necessity (47e-68d), and the origin of biological life from both mind and necessity (68e-92c). Cornford makes this three-fold division of the Timaeus a central point of his interpretation. Since Plato explicitly refers to going from one genesis narrative to the next, this distinction has strong support in the text.
