On Aristotle's categories by Porphyry( Book )

18 editions published between 1992 and 2014 in English and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Porphyry (ad 232/3 - c. 305) is of crucial importance for the history of Aristotelian studies. Born in Tyre and a student of Plotinus in Rome, he later defended Aristotle's Categories against Plotinus, arguing that they were entirely compatible with Platonism. His intervention was decisive: the Categories became a basic textbook of logic for all subsequent Neoplatonist teaching and influenced both the Arabic and Western Traditions. Boethius drew heavily on Porphyry's treatment. The full commentary is lost, but a shorter version survives and is translated here."--Bloomsbury Publishing

Iamblichus, De mysteriis by Iamblichus( Book )

73 editions published between 1497 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'écrit de Jamblique connu aujourd'hui sous le titre De mysteriis est l'un des rares traités consacré à l'histoire de la religion grecque à l'époque de l'Empire (IIIe-IVe siècle). Il aborde trois questions majeures : la classification des divinités, la divination et la théurgie (méthode pour s'unir à la divinité). L'occasion de ce traité lui a été fourni par Porphyre, le disciple de Plotin, qui, fidèle à son maître, voulait que l'union à dieu s'obtienne par un éveil de l'âme et la méditation portée à son point le plus élevé. Jamblique de son côté enseignait la théurgie, c'est-à-dire une méthode pour s'élever jusqu'à la divinité par les symboles sacrés semés dans le monde par le démiurge, dans lesquels on pouvait trouver la présence de dieu

On abstinence from killing animals by Porphyry( Book )

19 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Porphyry's On Abstinence from Killing Animals is one of the most interesting books from Greek antiquity for both philosophers and historians. In it, Porphyry relates the arguments for eating or sacrificing animals and then goes on to argue that an understanding of humans and gods shows such sacrifice to be inappropriate, that an understanding of animals shows it to be unjust, and that a knowledge of non-Greeks shows it to be unnecessary. There are no Neoplatonist commentaries on Aristotle's Ethics from the period AD 250-600. Thus, although this work is not a commentary on Aristotle, it fills a gap in this series by going to the heart of ethical debates among Neoplatonists around AD 300, and revealing one ascetic Neoplatonist's view of the ideal way of life. It also records rival positions taken on the treatment of animals by Greek philosophers over the previous six hundred years."--Bloomsbury Publishing
Porphyrii Sententiae ad intelligibilia ducentes by Porphyry( Book )

41 editions published between 1907 and 1975 in 8 languages and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Porphyry's Against the Christians : the literary remains by Porphyry( Book )

4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Critical notes by the translator provide a running commentary to the text. A lively introduction and comprehensive epilogue describe the "buildup" to the pagan critique of Christianity, and help put Porphyry's work in historical perspective. Accessible to the general reader as well as a valuable scholarly tool, this new translation of Against the Christians proves a worthy addition to both classical and patristic studies

Porphyry's Homeric questions on the Iliad : text, translation, commentary by Porphyry( Book )

14 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Homeric Questions of the philosopher Porphyry (3rd cent. CE) is an important work in the history of Homeric criticism. Porphyry applies the dictum that 'the poet explains himself' to solve questions of interpretation in Homer. This new edition of the "Questions on the Iliad" eliminates much that was wrongly attributed to Porphyry in the old edition (1880). In the interest of the non-specialist, the new text has a facing translation in English. The commentary explains Porphyry's arguments and the editor's textual decisions
To Gaurus on how embryos are ensouled ; and, On what is in our power by Porphyry( Book )

10 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Concerning embryos, Porphyry takes an original view on issues that had been left undecided by his teacher Plotinus and earlier by the doctor Galen. What role is played in the development of the embryo by the souls or the natures of the father, of the mother, of the embryo, or of the whole world? Porphyry's detailed answer, in contrast to Aristotle's, gives a significant role to the soul and to the nature of the mother, without, however, abandoning Aristotle's view that the mother supplies no seed. In the fragments of On What is in Our Power, ""Porphyry"" discusses Plato's idea that we choose
