Pythagoras Revived by Dominic J. O'Meara
Book DescriptionThe Pythagorean idea that number is the key to understanding reality inspired Neoplatonist philosophers in the fourth and fifth centuries to develop theories in physics and metaphysics based on mathematical models. The theories produced by this revived interest in Pythagoreanism were to become influential in medieval and early modern philosophy, and this book makes use of some newly-discovered evidence to examine for the first time the development of those theories.

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)
