(1994)[A20] 144pp, HB. New, but not generally available, book. Taylor's translation of Proclus' great distillation of Neoplatonism into a series of propositions. Thomas Taylor (1758-1835) the żEnglish 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.
