The Philosophy Of Proclus book. Otherwise, as in this book, one is confronted with repetitive paragraphs grasping to describe Proclus is the last major classical philosopher. Buried beneath his arcane abstractions is a sublime body of thought that reveals the mysticism at the heart of Platonic theology. Rosan seems to grasp the depth of Proclus's thinking; however, the presentation here is nearly as abstruse as the original texts. Proclus with his hierarchies and triads cries out for some symbolic or graphical representation.

Laurence Jay Rosan's The Philosophy of Proclus, subtitled The Final Phase of Ancient Thought, has long been considered one of the finest overviews of late Platonic teaching: first published in 1949 it helped bring about a re-evaluation of Proclus and his work by modern scholars. In Proclus we find philosophy as inner discipline - as a path to enlightenment - and his writings represent a fruition of a tradition which can be traced back though Iamblichus, Plotinus, Aristotle, Plato, Parmenides, Pythagoras, Homer, and, ultimately to its most ancient stirrings in Egypt.

Proclus Lycaeus, called the Successor, was a Greek Neoplatonist philosopher, one of the last major classical philosophers (see Damascius). He set forth one of the most elaborate and fully developed systems of Neoplatonism. He stands near the end of the classical development of philosophy and influenced Western medieval philosophy (Greek and Latin).

Laurence Jay Rosan's The Philosophy of Proclus, subtitled The Final Phase of Ancient Thought, has long been considered one of the finest overviews of late Platonic teaching: first published in 1949 it helped bring about a re-evaluation of Proclus and his work by modern scholars. Its clear and sympathetic approach to its subject allows the reader to follow, in the words of Rosan, "one of the most fascinating dialectics the human mind has conceived." The philosophy of Proclus, built as it was on over a thousand years of vigorous development by a series of profound philosophers and theologians, represents the last age in the West in which the highest human endeavours in philosophy, religion, science and art, were still united and integrated. In Proclus we find philosophy as inner discipline - as a path to enlightenment - and his writings represent a fruition of a tradition which can be traced back though Iamblichus, Plotinus, Aristotle, Plato, Parmenides, Pythagoras, Homer, and, ultimately to its most ancient stirrings in Egypt. Proclus draws from ancient mystery celebrations, mythological dramas, inspired oracles, as well as from the truly scientific philosophy of Plato, in order to present to the meditative student a system at once full of truth and profoundly beautiful. To this comprehensive philosophy Rosan displays no small skill in finding a way to provide his readers with a framework for its initial consideration.

Very good book on Proclus' philosophy. The exposition is clear and well organized.

I was a personal friend of the author, but lost contact with him ages ago. He seems to have been the only person in the academic world who was interested in Proclus. One would never guess from this book that Rosan had a highly controversial private life that wrecked his academic career. He died on June 30, 1986.
