Has anyone had a chance to delve into the new edition of Damascius' on the Philebus, the Bude by van Riel? I can't find any review or other mention online.
Oh, look what I just found has shown up now on the Cambridge U Press site. Available in July:
That's truly an impressive lineup of contributors. I can't quite make out what the image is on the cover - looks like something to do with the sun.
