Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Order From Disorder: Proclus' Doctrine of Evil and its Roots in Ancient Platonism contains the table of contents, and preface. The book is the fruition of two notions, first that a truly thorough study of Proclus' doctrine of evil must go beyond examination of the Neoplatonist's late opusculum on the topic to include numerous relevant texts from his earlier treatises, and secondly that his doctrine gives us a good vantage point from which to assess the entire tradition of treatment of the questions of the origin of evil and of its mode of existence within ancient Platonism, a tradition of which Proclus' own treatment in many ways represents the final chapter.

Keywords: ancient Platonism; opusculum; Proclus' doctrine
