Proclus: On Plato's Cratylus (Ancient Commentators on Aristotle) (New)
Publisher: Cornell University Press
Binding: Hardcover with dust jacket
Book ID: 9780801446566, 0801446562
Please inquire for availability
Proclus' Commentary on Plato's Cratylus is the only ancient commentary on this work to have come down to us, and is illuminating in two ways. First, it is actually the work of two Neoplatonists. The majority of the commentary is supplied by the Athens-based Proclus (c. CE 411-485), who is well known for his magisterial commentaries on Plato's Timaeus and Parmenides, as well as for a host of other works involving the study of Plato. The material we have consists of excerpts from Proclus's commentary edited by another figure who appears to be a Platonist working somewhat later in Alexandria. Consequently it contains insights into the philosophy of both of the principal late antique centers of Platonism, Athens and Alexandria. Second, the material is divided between the grittier issues of language-theory, on which it engages freely with other ancient philosophies, and theological discussion, mostly involved with the etymologies of the names of Greek gods, in which Proclus is concerned to relate his own brand of Platonism to the "Orphic" and "Chaldaen" theological systems, and also to Homer.

The Voynich Manuscript
Yale University Press
Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the Voynich Manuscript, the world s most mysterious book. Written in an unknown script by an unknown author, the manuscript has no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare books dealer Wilfrid Voynich. The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...More
