Proclus' Commentary on the Timaeus of Plato, volume II (Thomas Taylor Series, volume XVI)
Volume XVI of the Thomas Taylor Series.
Proclus' commentary on the Timaeus is the largest surviving late Platonic commentary, a treasury of Platonic and Pythagorean physics and metaphysics. In addition to his lucid exposition of the mature theories of the late Athenian Academy, Proclus offers detailed accounts of his predecessors' theories and interpretations, making this commentary an invaluable resource for reconstructing the history of Greek philosophy.
The Prometheus Trust edition includes pagination from the standard scholarly edition of Diehls, along with Taylor's extensive footnotes and references, and more than 1,500 extra references added by the Prometheus Trust. The second volume also includes a subject index, which covers both volumes.
544 pages. Hardcover.
