Abstract

The Routledge Handbook of Neoplatonism . London and New York: Routledge 2014. 644 pp, £ 135. The Routledge Handbook of Neoplatonism is a very welcome addition to the rank of first rate scholarly works on the Neoplatonists that have been appearing in recent years, as it seems at an increasing rate. The editors have succeeded in gathering many of the best scholars in the field to write on topics on which they are true experts—here I have in mind not only the older well established scholars who contribute to the volume but also a number of younger and less known ones. The volume has a useful introduction by the two editors and the bulk of it is divided into seven parts: i (Re)sources, instruction and interaction; ii Methods and styles of exegesis; iii Metaphysics and metaphysical perspectives; iv Language, knowledge, soul and self; v Nature: physics, medicine and bilology; vi Ethics, political theory and aesthetics; vii Legacy. At the back there is, naturally, an extensive bibliography and a general index, but also an index of passages cited from the ancient authors. To provide such an index is by no means a standard practice in multi-author surveys of this
