Pythagoras Revived by Dominic J. O'Meara

Book Description

The 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.

Syrianus: On Aristotle Metaphysics 13-14 by 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 by Dominic J. O'Meara 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 by Dominic J. O'Meara 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.

Plotinus by Dominic J. O'Meara Plotinus, Paperback (March 1995)

An introduction to the thought of the third-century AD writer Plotinus, one of the greatest of ancient philosophers.
