The paper defends the thesis that Proclus Diadochus' ideas are still relevant in modern culture. It appears that the ideas of Neoplatonism as a whole and these of Proclus' in particular matter at least in some aspects of modern culture, such as the foundations of politics, the basic characteristics of philosophy and the fundamental aspects of understanding of the human existence. In the sphere of politics, one can note the ideas useful for creating of the non-totalitarian forms of ideology. In contemporary philosophy the Neoplatonic studies can be interpreted as one of the bases of understanding of rational knowledge. The ideals of material harmony are essential for understanding of the human existence.
