Reading Neoplatonism: Non-discursive Thinking in the Texts of Plotinus, Proclus, and Damascius

by Rappe, Sara

Short description

Neoplatonism is a term used to designate the form of Platonic philosophy that developed in the Roman Empire from the third to the fifth century A.D. and that based itself on the corpus of Plato's dialogues. Sara Rappe's challenging and innovative study is the first book to analyze Neoplatonic texts themselves using contemporary philosophy of language. It covers the whole tradition of Neoplatonic writing from Plotinus through Proclus to Damascius. In providing the broadest available survey of Neoplatonic writing the book will appeal to classical philosophers, classicists, as well as students of religious studies. Cambridge University Press 2007 (digital edition). 289 pp., searchable pdf.
