The Parmenides, complete with most of Proclus' Commentaries on the Parmenides as additional notes; The Sophista; The Phaedrus, with a considerable portion of The Scholia of Hermias on the Phaedrus as additional notes. The Greater Hippias; The Banquet (Symposium). Included are two articles by Taylor relevant to these dialogues. 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.
