The most comprehensive collection of Neoplatonic writings available in English, this volume provides translations of the central texts of four major figures of the Neoplatonic tradition: Plotinus, Porphyry, Iamblichus, and Proclus. The general Introduction gives an overview of the period and takes a brief but revealing look at the history of ancient philosophy from the viewpoint of the Neoplatonists. Historical background--essential for understanding these powerful, difficult, and sometimes obscure thinkers--is provided in extensive footnotes, which also include cross-references to other works relevant to particular passages.

MEDIA REVIEWS

In addition to being a wonderful addition to the library of any classicist or historian of philosophy, the book can be used as a challenging text for an undergraduate specialized course in later Greek philosophy and even as a major text in a Graduate course in the same area. The academic world has been well served by this intelligently designed volume.--Joseph A. Novak, Philosophy in Review

This is a valuable anthology which makes a selection of key Neoplatonic texts available in new, accurate, and readable translations.--Anne Sheppard, Senior Lecturer in Classics, Royal Holloway, University of London
