    On the text and translation of the De mysteriis --Iamblichus the man --The De mysteriis: a defence of theurgy, and an answer to Porphyry's letter to Anebo --Iamblichus's knowledge of Egyptian religion and mythology --The nature and contents of De mysteriis --Iamblichus, . Liverpool University Press is the UK's third oldest university press, with a distinguished history of publishing exceptional research since The Pythagorean Life is the most extensive surviving source on Pythagoreanism, and has wider interest as an account of the religious aspirations of late antiquity. admirably clear translation and sensible introduction The Classical Review.

      The Protrepticus of Iamblichus (about AD before ), priestly reformer of Neoplatonism and commentator on Aristotle, is an exhortation to philosophy. The work combines the influences of Aristotle, Plato and Pythagoras, and is important both for revelations about these sources and for understanding Iamblichus' philosophy in its own right/5(20).   This book is the best introduction you can have on Iamblichus, and honestly, I regret having read De Mysteriis before reading this. Iamblichean philosophy is beautiful and compelling, however, it rests on too many assumptions of platonic philosophy as a whole, and having read Iamblichus before I read Plato Gregory Shaw is one of those academics /5. Book IX briefly examines the personal δαίμων, the “genius” of Socrates and the entity invoked in such elaborate theurgic rituals as called “The Eighth Book of Moses.” In Book X, Iamblichus reemphasizes that the only true good is mystical union with the gods (also called γνῶσις of the gods), and the only path to such.

      The Exhortation to Philosophy of Iamblichus, composed in Apamea (in ancient Syria) in the early 4 th c. AD, was a new kind of philosophical book, the first ‘textbook’ of ancient philosophy. Together with the other titles in his Pythagorean sequence, this book of Iamblichus is the first book of philosophy known to have been constructed by its author in chapters. Iamblichus was once considered one of the great philosophers. The Emperor Julian followed Iamblichus's teachings to guide the restoration of traditional pagan cults in his campaign against Christianity. Although Julian was unsuccessful, Iamblichus's ideas persisted well into the Middle Ages and beyond.   Iamblichus, Iamblichus, De Mysteriis – PhilPapers This book is of great value in and of itself, as are all the titles in the splendid series printed by the Society of Biblical Literature. The former generates all things and is guardian over them; but the latter has a natural disposition to yield and to turn submissively toward what it.
