Porphyry's Homeric questions on the Iliad text, translation, commentary by Porphyry ( )
17 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 755 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

On abstinence from killing animals by Porphyry ( Book )
14 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and held by 289 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."

Porphyry Introduction by Porphyry ( Book )
10 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Introduction to philosophy, written by Porphyry at the end of the second century AD is the most successful work of its kind ever to have been published. Porphyry's aim was modest: he intended to explain the meaning of five terms, 'genus', 'species', 'difference', 'property', and 'accident' - terms that he took to be important to Aristotelian logic and metaphysics, and hence to philosophy in general. Thus in principle the Introduction is simple and elementary. In face, there are sometimes difficulties and doubts on the surface of the text - and beneath the surface there are occasional profundities. For the work raises, directly or indirectly, a number of perennial philosophical questions; and indeed, the Introduction became, in Boethius's Latin translation, the point of reference for one of the longest-lasting of philosophical disputes - the dispute over the status of 'universals'." "This book contains a new English translation of the Introduction, preceded by a study of the life and works of Porphyry, the purpose and nature of the Introduction, and the history of the text. It is accompanied by a discursive commentary, the primary aim of which is to analyse and assess the philosophical theses and arguments that the Introduction puts forward."--Jacket
