This edition presents a radically improved text of Diogenes Laertius' Lives of Eminent Philosophers. The text is accompanied by a full critical apparatus on three levels. A lengthy introduction lists all the manuscripts of the Lives and discusses its transmission in late antiquity, the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. There is also an index of personal names, a bibliography and notes covering several features of the text and its interpretation. Professor Dorandi has used the Nachlaß of Peter Von der Mühll, (...) for the first time in its entirety, to verify and consolidate material that he had previously gathered. This is by far the most detailed and elaborate edition which Diogenes' Lives - a unique work which has had a profound influence on European literature and philosophy - has ever received. (shrink)
Il secondo volume della serie Commentaria in Aristotelem Byzantina, pubblicata sotto gli auspici dell'Accademia di Atene, presenta l'editio princeps, per le cure di Eleni Pappa, del decimo libro della Φιλοσοφία del poligrafo bizantino Giorgio Pachymeres . La Φιλοσοφία conta dodici libri ciascuno dei quali contiene un breve riassunto di un'opera di Aristotele, o a lui attribuita. I dodici libri sono preceduti da un proemio e da un indice dettagliato del contenuto. Lo scritto resta ancora purtroppo in larga misura inedito.
Philodemus sketches in the _Stoicorum historia_ the lives and times of the main members of the Stoic movement from Zeno to Panaetius. This new edition contains a revised critical text of P.Herc. 1018, with an Italian translation and a commentary.
’χεδημα ἢ νν ’ακαδημα καλομνη. Latte's obelization is unnecessary. The form finds confirmation in a text from which I this one may itself derive, a fragment of Dicaearchus' βος ϳελλδος preserved by Plutarch: δ Δικααχος ’μοε φησ κα ναρθο σστρατεσντων ττε τς τνδαρδαις ξ ’ αρκαδας, φ’ ο μν ’χεδημαν προσαγορεθναι τν νν ’ακαδμειαν, φ’ ο δ ναραθνα τν Δμομ, πιδιδντοντος πιδιδντν κτσως κατ τι λγιον σφαγιον σφαγισασθαι πρ τς παατξως.
A new inspection of the B manuscript of Diogenes Laertius’ Lives of Eminent Philosophers allows to restore the text of the beginning of Parmenides’ Life in a way that corresponds with Diogenes’ usage, and also to eliminate an obvious syntactic difficulty.
This article presents the editio princeps of a Life of Plato modelled on Diogenes Laertius' third book which can be found in two fifteenth-century manuscripts. It consists of a presentation of the two manuscripts ; a discussion of their relationship ; a discussion of the author of the Life, which I argue was Georges Scholarios ; a presentation of the text, with a short critical apparatus, and a series of notes largely focused on indicating the parallels between Scholarios' Life of (...) Plato and Diogenes' version. (shrink)
