Proclus the Successor was a fifth-century Greek Neoplatonist philosopher and the last major ancient Greek philosopher. He set forth one of the most elaborate and fully developed systems of Neoplatonism. Like Iamblichus, Proclus opposed Christianity and passionately defended paganism. He upheld that thoughts constitute reality, while concrete "things" are mere appearances. Ultimate reality, the "One," is both God and the Good and unifies his ethical and theological systems. His attitudes significantly influenced the development of theology in both the East and the West. Delphi's Ancient Classics series provides eReaders with the wisdom of the Classical world, with both English translations and the original Greek texts. This eBook presents Proclus' collected works, with illustrations, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
