On Aristotle's categories by Porphyry( Book )

19 editions published between 1992 and 2014 in English and held by 388 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

On abstinence from killing animals by Porphyry( Book )

26 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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."--Jacket
Porphyry's Against the Christians : the literary remains by Porphyry( Book )

6 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 304 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 Introduction by Porphyry( Book )

13 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in English and held by 285 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

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

16 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 162 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 held by 140 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 nature of the father, of the mother, of the embryo, or of the whole world? Pophyry's detailed answer, in contrast to Aristotle's, gives a big 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 each of our incarnations, and so are responsible for what happens in our lives.--From publisher description
