440Re: [neoplatonism] Neoplatonic Philosophy: Introductory Readings
- May 3, 2004Here is the book description from Amazon.com:
"The most comprehensive collection of Neoplatonic writings available in
English, this volume provides translations of the central texts of four
major figures of the Neoplatonic tradition: Plotinus, Porphyry, Iamblichus,
and Proclus. The general Introduction gives an overview of the period and
takes a brief but revealing look at the history of ancient philosophy from
the viewpoint of the Neoplatonists. Historical background-essential for
understanding these powerful, difficult, and sometimes obscure thinkers-is
provided in extensive footnotes, which also include cross-references to
other works relevant to particular passages."
I have ordered this book for myself, and will be glad to offer a
description/review, after I peruse the volume. In any case, given the
quality of work produced by the editors of this volume, I see no reason not
to purchase it forthwith.
