Olympiodorus: on Plato First Alcibiades 10-28

Full Product Description

Olympiodorus (AD "c." 500-570), possibly the last non-Christian teacher of philosophy in Alexandria, delivered twenty-eight lectures as an introduction to Plato. This volume translates lectures 10-28, following from the first nine lectures and a biography of the philosopher published in translation in a companion volume, "Olympiodorus: Life of Plato and On Plato First Alcibiades 1-9 "(Bloomsbury 2014).For us, these lectures can serve as an accessible introduction to late Neoplatonism. Olympiodorus locates the "First Alcibiades" at the start of the curriculum on Plato, because it is about self-knowledge. His pupils are beginners, able to approach the hierarchy of philosophical virtues, like the aristocratic playboy Alcibiades. Alcibiades needs to know himself, at least as an individual with particular actions, before he can reach the virtues of mere civic interaction. As Olympiodorus addresses mainly Christian students, he tells them that the different words they use are often symbols of truths shared between their faiths.
