This translation from the Greek by Thomas Taylor (1758-1835) was first published in 1821. Taylor's early writings and translations into English influenced such romantic poets as Blake, Coleridge and Keats. Iamblichus is thought to have been born in Syria in the middle of the third century and is regarded as one of the great Neoplatonist philosophers. He founded a school in which he taught 'white magic' or 'theurgy'; he sought to uncover the invisible side of nature and to give Man the means to effect the union of the divine spark with its parent-flame within him. In this work, divided into ten sections, he gives a complete canon of pagan religious thought and belief and explains their background. The Neoplatonist Porphyry's Letter to Anebo, in which he criticises religious rituals and practices, and Iamblichus' response to this criticism, and defence of these traditions, are included

14 editions published between 1888 and 2010 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is Thomas Taylor's adept translation of Plato's Republic. Plato's crowning achievement of art and philosophy. The idea that runs through the Republic is that the individual presents almost the same features and qualties as society, on a smaller scale, and in his argument Plato first considers the state and thence makes his deductions as to the individual. Besides the enduring value of the Republic as a work of art, its philosophical and ethical teaching is of particular interest in the present disordered condition of social and speculative ideas."--Publisher's blurb
