A.C. Crombie wrote: In a famous passage in the Laws (book 10), Plato had accused philosophers of leading youth away from the gods by teaching that this beautiful universe, the regularity of the heavenly movements, and the human soul arose 'not because of any mind, nor because of God, nor by art (téchne), but, as we may say, by nature (phúsis) and chance (túche).'
Can anyone help me find this quote?
Thanks.

Check Plato's Laws 889b-c. You might also like to trace chance further in all of Plato's works.
