Neoplatonic Philosophy by John Dillon

Book Description

The most comprehensive collection of Neoplatonic writings available in English, this volume provides translations of the central texts of four major figures of the Neoplatonic tradition: Plotinus, Porphyry, Iamblichus, and Proclus. The general Introduction gives an overview of the period and takes a brief but revealing look at the history of ancient philosophy from the viewpoint of the Neoplatonists. Historical background--essential for understanding these powerful, difficult, and sometimes obscure thinkers--is provided in extensive footnotes, which also include cross-references to other works relevant to particular passages.

Home of the Hammers by John Dillon Home of the Hammers, Hardback (August 2016)

West Ham United's move to the new Olympic Stadium ended a 114-year stay at the Boleyn Ground at Upton Park. With full access to The Times newspaper archive and stunning photography, lifelong West Ham fan and sports journalist John Dillon has created the definitive history of the ground the club first played at in 1902.

'Allies are a Tiresome Lot' by John Dillon 'Allies are a Tiresome Lot', Hardback (October 2015)

Using official documents and reports, as well as the personal letters and accounts of individual soldiers, this book draws out the demonstrable differences in the experience of those Tommies who fought on the Western and Italian fronts.

Syrianus: On Aristotle Metaphysics 13-14 by John Dillon Syrianus: On Aristotle Metaphysics 13-14, Paperback (April 2014)

Syrianus attacked Aristotle in his commentary on Books 13 and 14 of the "Metaphysics". This is because in "Metaphysics 13-14", Aristotle himself was being polemical towards Platonism. In reply, Syrianus gives an account of mathematical number and of geometrical entities, and of how all of these are processed in the mind.

Syrianus: on Aristotle Metaphysics 3-4 by John Dillon Syrianus: on Aristotle Metaphysics 3-4, Paperback (April 2014)

Reveals how Aristotelian metaphysics was formalized and transformed by a philosophy which found its deepest roots in Pythagoras and Plato. This book shows how metaphysics, as a philosophical science, was conceived by the Neoplatonic philosopher of Late Antiquity.
