    Proclus Vs Plotinus on Matter (De Mal. Subs. 30-7 ).Jan Opsomer - 2001 - Phronesis 46 (2):154-188.
    In "De malorum subsistentia" chs 30-7, Proclus criticizes the view that evil is to be identified with matter. His main target is Plotinus' account in Enn. I,8 [51]. Proclus denies that matter is the cause of evil in the soul, and that it is evil or a principle of evil. According to Proclus, matter is good, because it is produced by the One. Plotinus' doctrine of matter-evil is the result of a different conception of emanation, according to which matter does (...)

    Mathematical Explanation and the Philosophy of Nature in Late Ancient Philosophy: Astronomy and the Theory of the Elements.Jan U972 Jfa Cora Jla Opsomer - 2012 - Documenti E Studi Sulla Tradizione Filosofica Medievale 23:65-106.
    Late ancient Platonists discuss two theories in which geometric entities xplain natural phenomena : the regular polyhedra of geometric atomism and the ccentrics and epicycles of astronomy. Simplicius explicitly compares the status of the first to the hypotheses of the astronomers. The point of omparison is the fallibility of both theories, not the reality of the entities postulated. Simplicius has strong realist commitments as far as astronomy is concerned. Syrianus and Proclus, too, do not consider the polyhedra as devoid of (...)

    Alexander of Aphrodisias, De Intellectu 110.4: ‘I Heard This From Aristotle’. A Modest Proposal.Jan Opsomer & Bob Sharples - 2000 - Classical Quarterly 50 (1):252-256.
    The treatise De intellectu attributed to Alexander of Aphrodisias can be divided into four sections. The first is an interpretation of the Aristotelian theory of intellect, and especially of the active intellect referred to in Aristotle, De anima 3.5, which differs from the interpretation in Alexander's own De anima, and whose relation to Alexander's De anima, attribution to Alexander, and date are all disputed. The second is an account of the intellect which is broadly similar to A though differing on (...)

  14. The Cambridge History of Philosophy in Late Antiquity.Elizabeth Deplma Digeser, Angela Longo, Carlos Steel, David Blank, Gerd van Riel & Jan Opsomer - 2011 - Cambridge University Press.
    The Cambridge History of Philosophy in Late Antiquity comprises over forty specially comissioned essays by experts on the philosophy of the period 200-800 C.E. Designed as a successor to The Cambridge History of Later Greek and Early Medieval Philosophy , it takes into account some forty years of scholarship since the publication of that volume. The contributors examine philosophy as it entered literature, science and religion, and offer new and extensive assessments of philosophers who until recently have been mostly ignored. (...)
