Commentary on Plato's Timaeus by Proclus( Book )
10 editions published between 2007 and 2017 in English and Greek, Ancient [to 1453] and held by 381 libraries worldwide
Proclus' Commentary on Plato's dialogue Timaeus is arguably the most important commentary on a text of Plato, offering unparalleled insights into eight centuries of Platonic interpretation. This edition offers the first new English translation of the work for nearly two centuries, building on significant recent advances in scholarship on Neoplatonic commentators. It provides 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 present volume, the first in the edition, deals with what may be seen as the prefatory material of the Timaeus. In it Socrates gives a summary of the political arrangements favoured in the Republic, and Critias tells the story of how news of the defeat of Atlantis by ancient Athens had been brought back to Greece from Egypt by the poet and politician Solon

On the existence of evils by Proclus( Book )
21 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in English and held by 317 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
Procli Diadochi in Platonis Rem publicam commentarii by Proclus( Book )
54 editions published between 1899 and 1965 in 6 languages and held by 315 libraries worldwide
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

23 editions published between 1816 and 1986 in English and held by 235 libraries worldwide
Théologie platonicienne by Proclus( Book )
17 editions published between 1981 and 2003 in 4 languages and held by 153 libraries worldwide
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
Procli Diadochi Tria opuscula : De providentia, libertate, malo by Proclus( Book )
24 editions published between 1960 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 105 libraries worldwide
Procli in Platonis Parmenidem commentaria by Proclus( Book )
22 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 70 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 theological reading of the Parmenides persisted, through the medium of Ficino, until the nineteenth century. This volume, containing Books I-III, is the first of three volumes to replace the edition of V. Cousin (Paris, 1864). This new critical edition is based on an exhaustive study of both the Greek tradition and the medieval Latin translation."--Jacket
