Book Description ARE. Soft Cover. Book Condition: New. Excellent New Book. Neoplatonism, as we know, entered and formed the thought of Byzantine theologians and of such Western thinkers as John the Scot and Anselm. At the same time, through the de Causis and the so-called Theologia Aristotelis (really a cento of passages from Plotinus), it profoundly affected the Arabian and Jewish philosophers of the Middle Ages. Mediated by Averroism, a fresh stream of Neoplatonic influence reached down to the later scholastics and beyond them to Malebranche. Mediated by Ibn. Gebirol and Maimonides, it was carried over to Spinoza. Finally, Neo-platonism was kept alive in the Byzantine Empire by Psellus and his successors, and by them handed on to Pletho and Bessarion, and so to Pico della Mirandola and the other humanists of the Renaissance. The translations in this collection are made by E. R. Dodds from his own text which will be seen to be somewhat more conservative than Volkmann's text of the Enneads. Where original conjectures affecting the sense are adopted, they are indicated in footnotes. 128pp. Bookseller Inventory # 200113
