Luc Brisson presents Plato as a precursor of the late antique debate; his useful contribution can be seen as supplemented by the first part of Denis O’Brien’s paper, which provides a useful interpretation of Sophistes 258a-259a. Seven contributions discuss selected authors of the first to the fourth century: Philo (Folker Siegert), Seneca (Troels Engberg-Pedersen), the Gnostics (Zlatko Pleše), Numenius (Fabienne Jourdain), Clement of Alexandria (David T.
