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.

ISBN 9781898910053.
