  1. Phaedo of Elis and Plato on the Soul.George Boys-Stones - 2004 - Phronesis 49 (1):1 - 23.
    Phaedo of Elis was well-known as a writer of Socratic dialogues, and it seems inconceivable that Plato could have been innocent of intertextuality when, excusing himself on the grounds of illness, he made him the narrator of one of his own: the "Phaedo". In fact the psychological model outlined by Socrates in this dialogue converges with the evidence we have (especially from fragments of the Zopyrus) for Phaedo's own beliefs about the soul. Specifically, Phaedo seems to have thought that non-rational (...)

    Post-Hellenistic Philosophy: A Study of its Development From the Stoics to Origen.George Boys-Stones - 2001 - Oxford University Press.
    This book traces, for the first time, a revolution in philosophy which took place during the early centuries of our era. It reconstructs the philosophical basis of the Stoics' theory that fragments of an ancient and divine wisdom could be reconstructed from mythological traditions, and shows that Platonism was founded on an argument that Plato had himself achieved a full reconstruction of this wisdom, and that subsequent philosophies had only regressed once again in their attempts to "improve" on his achievement.

    Plutarch on the Probable Principle of Cold: Epistemology and the De Primo Frigido.George Boys-Stones - 1997 - Classical Quarterly 47 (1):227-238.
    The de primo frigido has long been recognized as an important text for our understanding of Plutarch′s epistemological position. It is the aim of this paper to show, however, that the sophistication of the work, and with it of Plutarch′s epistemology, is not generally given the credit due to it.

    Harpocration of Argos: Etymology and Metaphysics in the Platonist Revival.George Boys-Stones - 2012 - Journal of Hellenic Studies 132:1-6.
    This paper shows that our principal ancient source for the metaphysical views of the second-century Platonist Harpocration of Argos drew on his interpretation of Plato's Cratylus. This is important because there is no other evidence of the Cratylus being read for its metaphysical content until Proclus, 300 years later. It also changes our understanding of Harpocration: he is generally supposed to share the metaphysical views of Numenius, but his exegesis of the Cratylus reveals him to be a faithful student of (...)

    II—Lost Memory and Contested Recollection: A Response to Professor Adamson.George Boys-Stones - 2019 - Aristotelian Society Supplementary Volume 93 (1):185-202.
    A debate between Proclus and Damascius over whether intellect ‘remembers’ the forms in contemplating them is explained by Professor Adamson as a disagreement over the nature of memory looking back to Plato and Aristotle. But I argue that it is rather symptomatic of a disagreement stretching back through Plotinus to Middle Platonism over the nature of the intellect. This gives the debate its urgency; and it coheres better with the fact that, Plato and Aristotle aside, there is vanishingly little evidence (...)

  29. Platonist Philosophy 80 Bc to Ad 250: An Introduction and Collection of Sources in Translation.George Boys-Stones - 2017 - Cambridge University Press.
    'Middle' Platonism has some claim to be the single most influential philosophical movement of the last two thousand years, as the common background to 'Neoplatonism' and the early development of Christian theology. This book breaks with the tradition of considering it primarily in terms of its sources, instead putting its contemporary philosophical engagements front and centre to reconstruct its philosophical motivations and activity across the full range of its interests. The volume explores the ideas at the heart of Platonist philosophy (...)
