The Dissertations of Maximus Tyrius (Thomas Taylor Series, volume VI)
Volume VI of the Thomas Taylor Series.
Maximus Tyrius was a leading "Middle Platonist," who lived and worked in a period prior to that of the great Plotinus. His 41 dissertations, supplemented with Taylor's additional notes, deal with some profound philosophical and moral problems in a simple, but delightful and approachable manner.
This is the first reprint of Taylor's original translation, produced in two volumes in 1804, but published here in a single volume.
The Triumph of the Wise Man over Fortune, an essay by Taylor, is also included in this volume as an appendix.
330 pages. Hardcover.
