Commentaries on Plato, Parmenides : v. 2, Pt. 1 Hardback
Part of the The I Tatti Renaissance Library series
Marsilio Ficino (1433-1499), the Florentine scholar-philosopher-magus, was largely responsible for the Renaissance revival of Plato.
Ficino's commentaries on Plato remained the standard guide to the Greek philosopher's works for centuries.
Vanhaelen's new translation of Ficino's vast commentary on the Parmenides makes this monument of Renaissance metaphysics accessible to the modern student of philosophy.
The volume contains the first critical edition of the Latin text, an ample introduction, and extensive notes.
