Book description

This is the first book to provide an account of the influence of Proclus, a member of the Athenian Neoplatonic School, during more than one thousand years of European history (c.500–1600). Proclus was the most important philosopher of late antiquity, a dominant (albeit controversial) voice in Byzantine thought, the second most influential Greek philosopher in the later western Middle Ages (after Aristotle), and a major figure (together with Plotinus) in the revival of Greek philosophy in the Renaissance. Proclus was also intensively studied in the Islamic world of the Middle Ages and was a major influence on the thought of medieval Georgia. The volume begins with a substantial essay by the editor summarizing the entire history of Proclus' reception. This is followed by the essays of more than a dozen of the world's leading authorities in the various specific areas covered.

Reviews

'… an immensely learned compilation of studies of major (and some very minor) acts of appropriation or, to use Gersh’s own word, of the ‘assimilation’ of Procline Platonism.'

Lloyd Gerson Source: Bryn Mawr Classical Review

'This collective effort succeeds in making the strongest possible case for the grand narrative of over one thousand years of Proclus’s influence in the West and East; and many of the highlighted essays are significant contributions to the scholarly literature in their own fields.'

Daniel O’Connell Source: Journal of the History of Philosophy
