He set forth one of the most elaborate, complex, and fully developed Neoplatonic systems. He stands near the end of the classical Greek development of philosophy, and was extremely influential on later Christian (Greek and Latin) and Islamic thought.

    5. Proclus: 410-485 A.D.
    Proclus was trained at Alexandria and then moved to Athens, where he devoted himself to Neo-Platonic philosophy, and became the head of that school:
      Though he esteemed mathematics highly, it was only as a handmaid to philosophy. He quotes Plato's opinion to the effect that "mathematics, as making use of hypotheses, falls short of the non-hypothetical and perfect science." And again, while "mathematical science must be considered desirable in itself, though not with reference to the needs of daily life, if it is necessary to refer the benefit arising from it to something else, we must connect that benefit with intellectual knowledge, to which it leads the way and is a propaedeutic, clearing the eye of the soul and taking away the impediments which the senses place in the way of the knowledge of universals." We know that in the Neo-Platonic school the younger pupils learnt mathematics; and it is clear that Proclus taught this subject, and that this was the origin of the commentary.

    St. Proclus
    Patriarch of Constantinople Saint Proclus died in 446 or Proclus came to the fore in the time of Atticus , the Patriarch of Constantinople who succeeded (406) Arsacius who had been intruded upon the patriarchal throne after the violent deposition of St. John Chrysostom (404). "Proclus was a Lector at a very early age, and, assiduously frequenting the Schools, became devoted to the study of rhetoric. On attaining manhood he was in the habit of constant intercourse with Atticus , having been constituted his secretary" ( Socrates , "H.E.", VII, xl). From Atticus he received the diaconate and priesthood (ibid.). When Atticus died (425), there was a strong party in favour of Proclus , but Sissinius was eventually chosen as his successor. Sissinius appointed him Archbishop of Cyzicus ; but the Cyzicans chose a bishop of their own, and no attempt was made to force Proclus upon a reluctant people. Sissinius died at the end of 427, and again Proclus was likely to be appointed to the patriarchate , but eventually Nestorius was chosen.

    Early Geometry
    Proclus Diadochus, AD 410-485.
    (From his book: Commentary on Euclid's Elements I
    It was Thales, who, after a visit to Egypt, first brought this study to Greece. Not only did he make numerous discoveries himself, but laid the foundation for many other discoveries on the part of his successors, attacking some problems with greater generality and others more empirically. After him Mamercus the brother of the poet Stesichorus, is said to have embraced the study of geometry, and in fact Hippias of Elis writes that he achieved fame in that study.
    After these Pythagoras changed the study of geometry, giving it the form of a liberal discipline, seeking its first principles in ultimate ideas, and investigating its theorems abstractly and in a purely intellectual way.
    [He then mentions several who developed this abstract approach further: Anaxagoras, Hippocrates, Theodorus, etc.]
    Plato, who lived after Hippocrates and Theodorus, stimulated to a very high degree the study of mathematics and of geometry in particular because of his zealous interest in these subjects. For he filled his works with mathematical discussions, as is well known, and everywhere sought to awaken admiration for mathematics in students of philosophy.
    [He then lists several mathematicians, including Eudoxus and Theatetus, who discovered many new geometric theorems, and began to arrange them in logical sequences-this process culminated in the work of Euclid, called his

    16. 20th WCP: Mathematics As Paideia In Proclus
    ABSTRACT I examine one aspect of the central role which mathematics plays in proclus s ontology and epistemology, with particular reference to his Elements
    Ancient Philosophy Mathematics as Paideia in Proclus John J. Cleary
    ABSTRACT: I examine one aspect of the central role which mathematics plays in Proclus's ontology and epistemology, with particular reference to his Elements of Theology . I focus on his peculiar views about the ontological status of mathematical objects and the special faculties of the soul that are involved in understanding them. If they are merely abstract objects that are "stripped away" from sensible things, then they are unlikely to reorient the mind towards the intelligible realm, as envisioned by Plato in the Republic . Thus, in order to defend the function of mathematics as a prodaideutic to dialectic, Proclus rejects Aristotelian abstractionism in favor of an elaborate account in terms of Nous projecting images of its Forms through the medium of the imagination. In metaphorical terms, he replaces the Aristotelian image of the soul as a blank tablet with that of a tablet that has always been inscribed and is always writing itself, while also being written on by Nous . The mediating function of mathematics for understanding the higher realities is grounded in the fact that its central principles of Limit and Unlimited have a universal provenance in Proclus's whole system of reality. Introduction Most people who have written about Proclus's commentary on the first book of Euclid's

    Marinus of Samaria, The Life of Proclus or Concerning Happiness (1925) pp.15-55 PROCLUS OR CONCERNING HAPPINESS
    by Marinus of Samaria [Translated by Kenneth S. G UTHRIE Had I merely considered our contemporary philosopher Proclus's high-mindedness and worth, the multitude of documents and the oratorical achievements of the biographers of such a man,and besides, my own insufficiency in the practice of eloquenceI think I should have been wise in quietly refraining from "jumping over the ditch," as the vulgar say, by rushing into this perilous undertaking. But, brushing aside these requirements, I have reflected that even in the sacrifices the suppliants at the altars present offerings not all of the same value. Some seek to show themselves worthy of participating with the gods by offering whole bulls and goats, not to mention the composition of hymns in prose or verse; while others, having nothing similar to offer, present only cakes, a few grains of incense, or a short invocation, and are none the less favorably heard. Moved by these reflections, and besides fearing to "fail the gods," as says Plato's Ibycus, but here rather to fail this great sage; also, by my attitude, to assure myself the praises of the world,for all these reasons, I have decided that it was for me an obligation to relate in writing some of the high and numerous qualities which the philosopher exemplified in his life, and to relate them in all their truth.

    18. Proclus
    Translate this page Biographie succincte du philosophe néoplatonicien par Jean-Marie Nicolle.
    Proclus (412-486)
    Proclus est le plus célèbre des philosophes de l'école néoplatonicienne. Presque toutes ses oeuvres nous sont parvenues, dont le Commentaire sur le premier livre des Eléments d' Euclide , son chef d'oeuvre. Grâce à cet ouvrage qui commente notamment les définitions géométriques d'Euclide, on peut se faire une idée précise de la définition métaphysique que Proclus donne aux objets mathématiques. Proclus compare la pensée à un miroir-plan : "Il faut entendre le plan pour ainsi dire comme préétabli et placé devant les yeux, la pensée comme y décrivant toutes choses, et l'imagination assimilée en quelque sorte à un miroir plan sur lequel les concepts de la pensée renvoient leurs propres images." (PROCLUS, Commentaire sur le premier livres des Eléments d'Euclide , p. 109). On retrouve la même image chez N. de Cues : "l'âme regardant en elle-même, produit à la fois les concepts mathématiques et les sciences qui les étudient." ( De Mente , Herder, III, 554, et De Ludo Globi , Herder, III, 322).

    On the Sacred Art This work, like On the Signs of Divine Possession, is an extract from a lost work of Proclus Diadochus (412-485 AD), which is almost certainly his compendious Commentary on the Chaldean Oracles.

Proclus groeide op in Xanthos aan de Lycische kust, maar later werd zijn vader een vooraanstaand juridisch medewerker aan het hof van Byzantium . Hij volgde zijn vader echter niet in zijn voetsporen, want eenmaal in Alexandri« om daar rechten te studeren, besloot hij dat de filosofie zijn roeping was. Hij werd een leerling van Olympiodorus de Oudere en deed een gedegen onderzoek van de werken van Aristoteles . Hij ging daarna naar Athene om er de werken van Plato te bestuderen. Na de dood van Syrianus volgde hij deze op als hoofd van de Academie van Athene Hij had een hoge dunk van de wiskunde en doceerde het onderwerp ook. Hij zag wiskunde echter vooral als 'propedeuse', dat wil zeggen als een goede oefening in het logisch denken, dat daarom zijn nut als voorbereiding had op het filosofisch denken. Hij voerde een ascetisch leven, was ongehuwd, at geen vlees en schreef hymnes aan de goden, waarvan er een aantal nog bewaard zijn. Hij was een volgeling van de
