Plotinus by Dominic J. O'Meara
Book DescriptionThis is the ideal introduction to the thought of the third-century AD writer Plotinus, one of the greatest of ancient philosophers, now enjoying a major revival of interest. Dominic O'Meara has tailored the book carefully to the requirements of students: he writes clearly and authoritatively, assumes no knowledge of Greek or expertise in ancient philosophy, stays close to the texts, and relates Plotinus's ideas to modern philosophical concerns.

Books By Author Dominic J. O'Meara
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, 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.
Platonopolis, Paperback (September 2005)
Discusses topics such as: philosopher-kings and queens; political goals and levels of reform: law, constitutions, justice, and penology; the political function of religion; and the limits of political science and action. The author explores various reactions to the political ideas in the works of Christian and Islamic writers.
