This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Aug 20, Erick rated it it was amazing Shelves: This was definitely an excellent presentation of a fragmentary text. It’s mostly made up of commentary but even that was insightful and informative.

The actual text of Iamblichus’ De Anima is lost and only survives as extracts in Stobaeus. Iamblichus’ work was doxographical and Iamblivhus used it for his own doxographical survey.

One should keep in mind that Iamblichus’ work here only amounts to iamblochus 25 pages; 25 pages of Greek text on the left page and 25 pages of English translation on the righ This was definitely an excellent presentation of a fragmentary text. Iajblichus should keep in mind that Iamblichus’ work jamblichus only amounts to about 25 pages; 25 pages of Greek text on the left page and 25 pages of English translation on the right.

Even though the text is short, it does contain a lot of great information. Both those works provide further illumination on Iamblichus’ views, so they were a great addition.

Iamblichus basically surveys preceding philosophical opinion on the subject of psuche and provides some of his own views as well. Most of the znima revolves around the role of psuche as an intermediary between intellect and the world of sense.

There is some great discussions regarding imagination and light as well though. A good portion of the book is commentary, so the potential buyer should be aware of that.

I have to say though that the commentary is excellent. It often confirmed how I’ve been reading the Neo-Platonists. I don’t necessarily need that confirmation, but it’s good to see that scholars have been catching aimblichus same things.

Since very aima remains of Iamblichus’ body of works, a book like this does help to fill the lacuna. Apr 25, Christopher Plaisance rated it it was amazing Shelves: It has absolutely everything that a scholar could want: No one interested in Iamblichus should be without this book.
