Chapter Summary

This chapter on "The Individual Contributions to the Volume" contains essays treating the Platonic tradition from Classical Antiquity through the postmodern world. The first volume is the classical antiquity which has the dialogues of Plato and the second volume on early Antiquity to late Antiquity takes us through a peculiar form of Gnosticism that emerged in the second century CE onward to Proclus (441-485) and Simplicius (490-560). The third section of this volume enters into the Modern world, starting from the question of universal science in the Renaissance/early Modern period, and then going back through Descartes to Plato, Aristotle, Boethius, and Syrianus, and back again to Speusippus, Xenocrates, and the Old Academy, and then branching on into the Cambridge Platonists. The final section of the book, the Postmodern section, there are two essays, one on Levinas by Kevin Corrigan and the second on Derrida by Stephen Gersh.

Keywords: classical antiquity; early antiquity; individual contributions; postmodern section; renaissance; volume
