This volume contains papers by a group of leading experts on Aristotle and the later Aristotelian tradition of Neoplatonism. The discussion ranges from Aristotle's treatment of Parmenides, the most important pre-Socratic Greek philosopher, to Neoplatonic and medieval use of Aristotle, for which Aristotle himself set guidelines in his discussions of his predecessors. Traces of these guidelines can be seen in the work of Plotinus, and that of the later Greek commentators on Aristotle. The study of these commentators, and the recognition of the philosophical interest and importance of the ideas which they expressed in their commentaries, is an exciting new development in ancient philosophy to which this book makes a unique and distinguished contribution.

Industry Reviews

Richard Wallace, Greece & Rome, April 1993 'an indispensable buy' John Moles, University of Durham, Ploutarchos 9.2 (1993) 'All the articles, by internationally recognized authorities and this competent and scholarly, reflect the authors' training in analytic philosophy, and exhibit the virtues of that tradition. All are clear, concise and focused ... this book represents the most recent work of some of the most influential modern commentators in ancient philosophy and is valuable as such.'
