Description

Proclus Theology of Plato, Book III, chapters 7 and 8 - the Bound and the Infinite

In its seventh year, the Neoplatonic Studies seminar will focus on the theme of Neoplatonic approaches to theology, focusing on Proclus's ideas in particular. The seminar is, as it has been from its inception, open to all – to those who have and do not have ancient Greek, to those well-versed in ancient Neoplatonic philosophy, and to those who are not. The only requisite is ‘a desire to know’. Each week the seminar studies a short passage or two in English translation (though those who prefer to read the original Greek are not forbidden from doing so). This year, as interludes to the programme proper, we intend to invite two established Neoplatonic scholars, names to be announced, to lead the seminar on a topic of their choice. 

If you are not already a participant and would like to join the sessions, please email Daniel Samuel (daniel.samuel@postgrad.sas.ac.uk) to be sent a link to Zoom.  

The seminar is organized by Sara Miglietti (Warburg), Tim Addey (Prometheus Trust), Harold Tarrant (University of Newcastle, Australia), Dilwyn Knox (UCL), Daniel Samuel (Warburg PhD), and Peter Singer.
