Stoicheiōsis theologikē = The elements of theology by Proclus( Book )
170 editions published between 1822 and 2013 in 10 languages and held by 1,065 libraries worldwide
A concise summa of the Neoplatonic system in its fully developed form; for the student of late Greek thought it is second in importance only to the Enneads of Plotinus. Professor Dodds has provided a critical text based on a personal examination of some 40 manuscripts, together with an English translation and a philosophical and linguistic commentary. [Book jacket]

Commentary on Plato's Timaeus by Proclus( Book )
22 editions published between 2007 and 2017 in English and Greek, Ancient [to 1453] and held by 401 libraries worldwide
Proclus' Commentary on the dialogue Timaeus by Plato (d.347 BC), written in the fifth century AD, is arguably the most important commentary on a text of Plato, offering unparalleled insights into eight centuries of Platonic interpretation. It has had an enormous influence on subsequent Plato scholarship. This edition nevertheless offers the first new translation of the work for nearly two centuries, building on significant recent advances in scholarship by Neoplatonic commentators. It will provide an invaluable record of early interpretations of Plato's dialogue, while also presenting Proclus' own views on the meaning and significance of Platonic philosophy. The book presents Proclus' unrepentant account of a multitude of divinities involved with the creation of mortal life, the supreme creator's delegation to them of the creation of human life, and the manner in which they took the immortal life principle from him and wove it together with our mortal parts to produce human beings

On the existence of evils by Proclus( Book )
21 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in English and held by 320 libraries worldwide
"Proclus' On the Existence of Evils is not a commentary, but helps to compensate for the dearth of Neoplatonist ethical commentaries. The central question addressed in the work is: How can there be evil in a providential world? Neoplatonists agree that it cannot be caused by higher and worthier beings. Plotinus had said that evil is matter, which, unlike Aristotle, he collapsed into mere privation or lack, thus reducing its reality. He also protected higher causes from responsibility by saying that evil may result from a combination of goods. Proclus objects: evil is real, and not the mere privation of form. Rather, it is a parasite feeding off good. Parasites have no proper cause, and higher beings are thus vindicated as being the causes only of the good off which evil feeds."--Jacket
On the eternity of the world = De aeternitate mundi by Proclus( Book )
11 editions published in 2001 in 4 languages and held by 300 libraries worldwide
"In the fifth century A.D., Proclus served as head of the Academy in Athens, which had been founded 900 years earlier by Plato. Proclus was the last great systematizer of Greek philosophy, and his work exerted a powerful influence in late antiquity, in the Arab world, and in the Renaissance. His treatise On the Eternity of the World formed the basis for virtually all later arguments for the eternity of the world and for the existence of God; consequently, it lies at the heart of neoplatonic philosophy and the controversy between pagans and Christians at the end of antiquity. No known copy survives." "Proclus's eighteen Arguments were quoted, however, within John Philoponus's polemic against him, written in the sixth century; but the opening pages of the sole extant manuscript, which contained the first Argument, have been lost. In this book, Helen Lang and A.D. Macro present the seventeen Arguments preserved by Philoponus and translate them as an independent work. The first Argument, which survives in Arabic, is also included and makes this the only complete edition of On the Eternity of the World since antiquity." "This edition comprises the seventeen Arguments (II-XVIII) in Greek and English, along with an introduction, synopses, and detailed notes to help readers with or without Greek understand them philosophically and historically. Two appendices complete the volume: the Arabic text of the first Argument, also with English translation and notes, and the first modern edition of an important Latin translation from the Renaissance."--Jacket
Procli Diadochi in Platonis Rem publicam commentarii by Proclus( Book )
51 editions published between 1899 and 1965 in 6 languages and held by 295 libraries worldwide
Procli In Platonis Parmenidem commentaria by Proclus( Book )
31 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 276 libraries worldwide
"The Commentary on Plato's Parmenides by Proclus (AD 412-85) is the most important document from ancient philosophy on the interpretation of this enigmatic dialogue, and has had a crucial influence on all subsequent readings. In Proclus' interpretation, the Parmenides provides the argumentative and conceptual framework for a scientific theology wherein all mythological discourse about the gods can be integrated. Its exposition was therefore the culmination of the curriculum of the Platonic school ... This new critical edition is based on an exhaustive study of both the Greek tradition and the medieval Latin translation."--Jacket
On providence by Proclus( Book )
16 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 257 libraries worldwide
""The universe is, as it were, one machine, wherein the celestial spheres are analogous to the interlocking wheels and the particular beings are like the things moved by the wheels, and all events are determined by an inescapable necessity. To speak of free choice or self determination is only an illusion we human beings cherish." Thus writes Theodore the engineer to his old friend Proclus. Proclus' reply is one of the most remarkable discussions on fate, providence, and free choice in Late Antiquity. It continues a long debate that had started with the first polemics of the Platonists against the Stoic doctrine of determinism. How can there be a place for free choice and moral responsibility in a world governed by an unalterable fate? Notwithstanding its great interest, Proclus' treatise has not received the attention it deserves, probably because its text is not very accessible to the modern reader. It has survived only in a Latin medieval translation and in some extensive Byzantine Greek extracts. This first English translation, based on a retro-conversion that works out what the original Greek must have been, brings the arguments he formulates again to the fore."--BOOK JACKET
On Plato's "Cratylus" by Proclus( Book )
17 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 248 libraries worldwide
"Until the launch of this series nearly twenty years ago, the 15,000 volumes of the ancient Greek commentators on Aristotle, written mainly between 200 and 600 ad, constituted the largest corpus of extant Greek philosophical writings not translated into English or other European languages. Over 40 volumes have now appeared in the series, which is planned in some 80 volumes altogether. 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 special ways. First, it is actually the work of two Neoplatonists. The majority of the material is supplied by the Athenian-based Proclus (c. 411-485 ad), 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. This material we have consists of excerpts from Proclus' 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 centres of Platonism, Athens and Alexandria. Secondly, 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 more concerned to relate his own brand of Platonism to the 'Orphic' and 'Chaldaean' theological systems, and also to Homer. Brian Duvick's extensive notes bring out all these facets of the ancient text."--Bloomsbury Publishing

Ptolemy's Tetrabiblos, or Quadripartite: being four books of the influence of the stars by Ptolemy( Book )
17 editions published between 1822 and 2014 in English and held by 241 libraries worldwide
The Tetrabiblos, or Quadripartite of Ptolemy is one of the most signigicant surviving ancient texts about astrology. Its audthor, Claudius Ptolemy is most famous for being the originator of the Ptolemaic system whereby Earth stood fixed at the center of the universe, with crystalline spheres within spheres whirling around it. In balance, the universe had a vast influence on earthly events, which was the basis for the belief in Astrology

Proclus the Successor on poetics and the Homeric poems : essays 5 and 6 of his Commentary on the Republic of Plato by Proclus( Book )
3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 133 libraries worldwide
"Proclus's "Commentary on the Republic of Plato" contains in its fifth and sixth essays the only systematic analysis of the workings of the allegorical text to reach us from polytheist antiquity. In the context of defending Homer against the criticisms leveled by Socrates in the "Republic," Proclus, a late-antique polytheist thinker, provides not only a rich selection of interpretive material, but also an analysis of Homer's polysemous text whose influence can be observed in the work of the founder of modern semiotics, Charles Sanders Peirce. This first modern translation into English, with Greek text facing and limited commentary, makes it possible to appreciate the importance of Proclus in the history of both hermeneutics and semiotics." --Cover, p.4
