    Socrates’ Tomb in Antisthenes’ Kyrsas and its Relationship with Plato’s Phaedo.Menahem Luz - 2022 - International Journal of the Platonic Tradition 1176.
    Socrates’ burial is dismissed as philosophically irrelevant in Phaedo 115c-e although it had previously been discussed by Plato’s older contemporaries. In Antisthenes’ Kyrsas dialogue describes a visit to Socrates’ tomb by a lover of Socrates who receivesprotreptic advice in a dream sequence while sleeping over Socrates’ grave. The dialogue is a metaphysical explanation of how Socrates’ spiritual message was continued after death. Plato underplays this metaphorical imagery by lampooning Antisthenes philosophy and his work and subsequently precludes him from an active (...)

    Dio Come Ἀκαλλής. Conseguenze E Implicazioni Concettuali Dell’Apofatismo Nel Corpus Areopagiticum.Michele Abbate - 2022 - International Journal of the Platonic Tradition 16 (2):190-208.
    Within the Neoplatonic tradition, the absolute transcendence of the First Principle—the One-Good, from which the whole reality in its various articulations derives—plays a crucial role. This philosophical perspective implies, particularly in Plotinus and Proclus, some fundamental philosophical consequences, above all the transcendence of the Principle with respect to being and thought as well. This necessarily implies that the One-Good must be conceived of as beyond the intelligible Beauty itself. In this paper I aim to examine the theoretical implications and consequences (...)

    Werner Beierwaltes and the Yearning for Transcendence.Douglas Hedley - 2022 - International Journal of the Platonic Tradition 16 (2):115-133.
    In this paper we explore some of the key themes in the thought of Werner Beierwaltes. He established a reputation as a scholar of Neoplatonism during a period of great renewal of Neoplatonic studies in the last century, and that esteem was justly deserved. Yet his work was motivated by the faith in Platonism as a living tradition and a resolute conviction that metaphysics is an ineluctable part of the philosophical vocation; and indeed he was irritated by jejune or simplistic (...)

    L’Être Et le Temps Dans le Parménide Et Dans le Timée de Platon.F. Karfík - 2022 - International Journal of the Platonic Tradition 16 (2):134-151.
    Two of Plato’s dialogues, the Parmenides and the Timaeus, deal explicitly with the relationship between being and time. The former builds on the assumption that whatever is must be temporal, while the latter makes being and time mutually exclusive. This paper begins by examining how the argument develops in the Parmenides, specifically in the corresponding sections 140e1-142a1 and 151e3-155e3 of the first and the second deductions of the dialectical exercise, as well as in the corollary to the second deduction at (...)

    Das Verhältnis Zwischen Neuplatonismus Und Christentum Nach Werner Beierwaltes Am Beispiel Seiner Auslegung des Dionysius Areopagitas.Nicoletta Scotti Muth - 2022 - International Journal of the Platonic Tradition 16 (2):209-237.
    The present essay aims first at clarifying Werner Beierwaltes’ understanding of Neoplatonism at large as the accomplishment of Greek philosophy pursued by Plotinus and coherently developed by Proclus. It seeks secondly to locate Beierwaltes’ remarkable effort to trace the “Wirkungsgeschichte” of Neoplatonism. Focus has been placed, thirdly on his understanding of Dionysius Areopagita as the effective mediator of Neoplatonic issues in the Latin philosophical tradition long before the rediscovery of Proclus in the 13. century. Beierwaltes’ understanding of Dionysius’ “Christian Neoplatonism” (...)

    Comment L’'Me Voit L’Intellect. Une Note Textuelle En Marge de Plotin, Enn. IV 6 (41) 2, 22-24.Daniela P. Taormina - 2022 - International Journal of the Platonic Tradition 16 (2):152-162.
    This note aims to show that the text attested by the Medieval sources for Plotinus, Ennead IV, 6 2, 22-24 can be retained, notwithstanding the doubts of several scholars who tried to amend it. Retaining the manuscript tradition enables us to read in the passage three different kinds of vision of the soul : the soul’s ordinary vision of itself, characterized by duality and otherness ; the soul’s vision of intellect and its vision of itself, when she is within the (...)

    Der Geist Als Bild des Einen.Christian Tornau - 2022 - International Journal of the Platonic Tradition 16 (2):163-189.
    Plotinus claims that Intellect, the second hypostasis, is an image of the transcendent One or Good. While this is certainly an application of the paradeigmatist language inherited from the Platonic theory of Forms, it is not obvious how this claim squares with the Neoplatonic axiom that the One transcends Being and Thought and is absolutely formless. I argue that Plotinus solves this dilemma by interpreting Plato’s characterization of Intellect and Being as “Good-like” in such a way as to refer, not (...)

    Socrates’ Burial in Plato and Euclides.Menahem Luz - 2022 - International Journal of the Platonic Tradition 16 (1):1-14.
    In Phaedo 115c-e Socrates scornfully rebukes Crito for enquiring how Socrates should be buried for Crito had not been persuaded by the previous arguments that burying Socrates’ body is not equal to burying Socrates. A parallel account is found in Aelian and Diogenes Laertius where Apollodorus is rebuked for attempting to persuade Socrates that he should be bothered how his remains would be clothed when laid out. Several scholars have suggested this should not be considered a copy of Plato but (...)
