Philosophy in Late Antiquity
Philosophy in Late Antiquity provides an essential new introduction to the key ideas of the Neoplatonists, which affected approaches to Plato as late as the nineteenth century. Andrew Smith shows how they influenced Christian thought and his approach not only allows us to appreciate these philosophical ideas in their own right, but it also gives us significant insights into the mentality of the age which produced them.
'Providing a clear and philosophically interesting survey ... Smith has provided a rich introduction to Neoplationic thought ... it is a fine survey of the field.' - BMCR
