Review:

"Dillon's excellent work is the first book-length study in any language of the whole development of Platonism in the 300 years between Cicero and Plotinus. . . . From the opening pages on Plato's oral teaching and the work of his immediate successors Speusippus and Xenocrates, the book is very clear, judicious, and surprisingly enjoyable. The book will do much to open this neglected and fascinating period to contemporary scholars and students at all levels."―Choice

"Dillon's book will be of much use. . . . He covers almost all of the Middle Platonists (Eudorus, Plutarch, Atticus, Albinus, Apuleius, Nicomachus, Numenius, etc.) summarizing . . . what we know about their lives and opinions. . . .Considerable attention is paid to the historical problems of the origins and development of Middle Platonism."―Review of Metaphysics

"A superb historical survey of certain philosophical developments that arose between the times of Plato and Plotinus . . . . One must welcome this book as an important contribution to the contemporary discussion of Platonic thought."―Journal of the American Academy of Religion

"This book is learned, thorough, reliable, and honest, at the same time being readable, lucid, and technical enough for those who wish to pursue the matter farther, without being too technical for the general reader with a smattering of Greek philosophy."―Classical Review
