On Aristotle's "Metaphysics 13-14" by Syrianus( Book )

60 editions published between 1887 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 442 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Syrianus, originally from Alexandria, moved to Athens and became the head of the Academy there after the death of Plutarch of Athens. Syrianus attacked Aristotle in his commentary on Books 13 and 14 of the Metaphysics, just as his pupil Proclus was to do later in his commentaries on Plato. This is because in Metaphysics 13-14 Aristotle himself was being thoroughly polemical toward Platonism, in particular against the Academic doctrine of Form-numbers and the whole concept of separable numbers. In reply, Syrianus gives an account of mathematical numbers and of geometrical entities, and of how all of these are processed in the mind, which was to influence Proclus and all subsequent Neoplatonists."--Jacket

The teachings of Syrianus on Plato's Timaeus and Parmenides by Sarah Klitenic Wear( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although it has long been established that Syrianus, the teacher of Proclus, was the source of much of his student's metaphysics, it is not known precisely what in Proclus' thought can be attributed to Syrianus. The problem is compounded by the fact that Syrianus wrote very little and there is uncertainty as to whether written commentaries ever existed of his teaching on Plato's "Timaeus" and "Parmenides," the most important sources for Platonic metaphysics. This work attempts to re-construct the major tenets of Syrianus' philosophical teachings on the "Timaeus" a
