A commentary on the first book of Euclid's Elements by Proclus( Book )

Commentary on Plato's Timaeus by Proclus( )

33 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 1,037 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Proclus' Commentary on the dialogue Timaeus by Plato (d.347 BC), written in the fifth century AD, is arguably the most important commentary on a text of Plato, offering unparalleled insights into eight centuries of Platonic interpretation. It has had an enormous influence on subsequent Plato scholarship. This edition nevertheless offers the first new translation of the work for nearly two centuries, building on significant recent advances in scholarship by Neoplatonic commentators. It will provide an invaluable record of early interpretations of Plato's dialogue, while also presenting Proclus' own views on the meaning and significance of Platonic philosophy. The book presents Proclus' unrepentant account of a multitude of divinities involved with the creation of mortal life, the supreme creator's delegation to them of the creation of human life, and the manner in which they took the immortal life principle from him and wove it together with our mortal parts to produce human beings."--

Commentary on Plato's Timaeus by Proclus( )

11 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and Spanish and held by 687 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This part of Proclus' Commentary is particularly responsive to the interpretive tradtions that precedes him. As a result, the introductory essay describes the previous exegetical tradition around the psychogenesis in the Timaeus and describes Proclus' disagreements with his predecessors. It also examines the way in which his interpretations of specific Platonic passages serves some of his broader philosophical agendas."--Abstract, p. ii

On the existence of evils by Proclus( Book )

26 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in English and held by 499 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Proclus' On the Existence of Evils is not a commentary, but helps to compensate for the dearth of Neoplatonist ethical commentaries. The central question addressed in the work is: How can there be evil in a providential world? Neoplatonists agree that it cannot be caused by higher and worthier beings. Plotinus had said that evil is matter, which, unlike Aristotle, he collapsed into mere privation or lack, thus reducing its reality. He also protected higher causes from responsibility by saying that evil may result from a combination of goods. Proclus objects: evil is real, and not the mere privation of form. Rather, it is a parasite feeding off good. Parasites have no proper cause, and higher beings are thus vindicated as being the causes only of the good off which evil feeds."--Jacket
On providence by Proclus( Book )

19 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 430 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""The universe is, as it were, one machine, wherein the celestial spheres are analogous to the interlocking wheels and the particular beings are like the things moved by the wheels, and all events are determined by an inescapable necessity. To speak of free choice or self determination is only an illusion we human beings cherish." Thus writes Theodore the engineer to his old friend Proclus. Proclus' reply is one of the most remarkable discussions on fate, providence, and free choice in Late Antiquity. It continues a long debate that had started with the first polemics of the Platonists against the Stoic doctrine of determinism. How can there be a place for free choice and moral responsibility in a world governed by an unalterable fate? Notwithstanding its great interest, Proclus' treatise has not received the attention it deserves, probably because its text is not very accessible to the modern reader. It has survived only in a Latin medieval translation and in some extensive Byzantine Greek extracts. This first English translation, based on a retro-conversion that works out what the original Greek must have been, brings the arguments he formulates again to the fore."--BOOK JACKET
Proclus: Alcibiades I by Proclus( Book )

31 editions published between 1961 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This translation and commentary is based on the Critical Text and Indices of Proclus: Commentary on the First Alcibiades of Plato, Amsterdam 1954, by L.G. Westerink. Index II has been of great help in the translation, and the commentary is much indebted to the critical apparatus. Dr. Westerink has also been kind enough to forward his views on the relatively few problems which the Greek text has presented. A further debt is owed to the review of Dr. Westerink's text by Prof. E.R. Dodds in GNOMON 1955 p. 164-1, chiefly for some references and some emendations to the Greek text. W.R.M. Lamb's Loeb translation of Alcibiades I has helped considerably in construing the lemmata, which Signor Antonio Carlini has found to have been inserted by a later hand from a Plato MSS. of the W family. Evidence for this is their discrepancy with the text as read in the main body of the commentary (d. Studi Classici e Orientali, vol. x, Pisa 1961). On the personal side, the whole work has received the benefit of constant advice from Prof. A.H. Armstrong. It was he who first suggested the undertaking, and he has been kind enough to read through the translation and commentary, making many corrections and helpful suggestions. In particular lowe him the parallels with Plotinus and thanks for a Socratic patience in my more obtuse moments
On Plato's "Cratylus" by Proclus( Book )

19 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 428 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Proclus' Commentary on Plato's Cratylus is the only ancient commentary on this work to have come down to us, and is illuminating in two ways. First, it is actually the work of two Neoplatonists. The majority of the commentary is supplied by the Athens-based Proclus (c. CE 411-485), who is well known for his magisterial commentaries on Plato's Timaeus and Parmenides, as well as for a host of other works involving the study of Plato. The material we have consists of excerpts from Proclus's commentary edited by another figure who appears to be a Platonist working somewhat later in Alexandria. Consequently it contains insights into the philosophy of both of the principal late antique centers of Platonism, Athens and Alexandria. Second, the material is divided between the grittier issues of language-theory, on which it engages freely with other ancient philosophies, and theological discussion, mostly involved with the etymologies of the names of Greek gods, in which Proclus is concerned to relate his own brand of Platonism to the "Orphic" and "Chaldaen" theological systems, and also to Homer."--BOOK JACKET

On the eternity of the world = De aeternitate mundi by Proclus( Book )

13 editions published in 2001 in 4 languages and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the fifth century A.D., Proclus served as head of the Academy in Athens, which had been founded 900 years earlier by Plato. Proclus was the last great systematizer of Greek philosophy, and his work exerted a powerful influence in late antiquity, in the Arab world, and in the Renaissance. His treatise On the Eternity of the World formed the basis for virtually all later arguments for the eternity of the world and for the existence of God; consequently, it lies at the heart of neoplatonic philosophy and the controversy between pagans and Christians at the end of antiquity. No known copy survives." "Proclus's eighteen Arguments were quoted, however, within John Philoponus's polemic against him, written in the sixth century; but the opening pages of the sole extant manuscript, which contained the first Argument, have been lost. In this book, Helen Lang and A.D. Macro present the seventeen Arguments preserved by Philoponus and translate them as an independent work. The first Argument, which survives in Arabic, is also included and makes this the only complete edition of On the Eternity of the World since antiquity." "This edition comprises the seventeen Arguments (II-XVIII) in Greek and English, along with an introduction, synopses, and detailed notes to help readers with or without Greek understand them philosophically and historically. Two appendices complete the volume: the Arabic text of the first Argument, also with English translation and notes, and the first modern edition of an important Latin translation from the Renaissance."--Jacket
Procli In Platonis Parmenidem commentaria by Proclus( Book )

33 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Commentary on Plato's Parmenides by Proclus (AD 412-85) is the most important document from ancient philosophy on the interpretation of this enigmatic dialogue, and has had a crucial influence on all subsequent readings. In Proclus' interpretation, the Parmenides provides the argumentative and conceptual framework for a scientific theology wherein all mythological discourse about the gods can be integrated. Its exposition was therefore the culmination of the curriculum of the Platonic school ... This new critical edition is based on an exhaustive study of both the Greek tradition and the medieval Latin translation."--Jacket
