His philosophy, delivered in the form of popular lectures, is very readable, but philosophically unoriginal; yet it is precisely this which makes it an excellent introduction to the ideas and assumptions that much of the religion and philosophy of the period took for granted. --Thomas Taylor (1758-1835) the ‘English Platonist, ' was the indefatigable translator of Plato, Aristotle, and the Neoplatonists into English. His work remains of great value, not only for its marked influence on the Romantics and various mystical writers (e.g. Shelley, Wordsworth, Blake, Emerson), but also for Taylor's profound empathy and understanding of the Pagan religious background of Neoplatonism. The fact that Taylor's translations are, in many cases, still the only ones ensures the continuing relevance of his work.
