MEDIA REVIEWS

A CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title, 2015

'All of the essays are engagingly written, with a view to appealing to non-scholarly readers without compromising genuine scholarship. This definitive volume is one of the most comprehensive source books of secondary information on this fascinating philosophical movement. It includes copious notes and an extraordinary bibliography. Summing Up: Essential.' - P. A. Streveler, CHOICE

'The overall quality is very high... unsurprising given that the essays are generally written by leading experts on each topic. The Handbook will be useful for a wide readership. Experts on Neoplatonism will find it useful, however, most of the articles are understandable to the non-expert and in many cases ideal for someone with some background in earlier Greek philosophy who wishes to familiarize themselves with Neoplatonism in some depth.' - Eyjolfur Kjalar Emilsson, University of Oslo, Norway
