Damascius: Lectures on the Philebus
Edited and translated by L.G. Westerink.
In his Lectures on the Philebus, Damascius addresses some of the most important insights explored by the late Platonic writers, concerning the dialectical system, the relation of the One to the Many, and of Pleasure to Intelligence, the Bound and the Infinite and their mixture, the nature of the Good, and so on.
Damascius, as the last head of the Athenian Academy and a philosopher of great penetration, displays the profundity of the Platonic tradition after many centuries of continuous development.
This is a new edition, which incorporates the amendments noted by Prof. Westerink in the margin of his own working copy, after its first publication.
176 pages. Hardcover.
