Chapter Summary

This bibliography section of the book Order From Disorder: Proclus' Doctrine of Evil and its Roots in Ancient Platonism contains a list of reference books and material. Our understanding of Proclus' doctrine of the nature of evil has been greatly enhanced in the past 30 years by several annotated translations of his late monograph on the subject, De malorum subsistentia (DMS), most recently the fine English edition of Jan Opsomer and Carlos Steel. The methodological principle guiding the book is that anything approaching a full understanding of Proclus' doctrine of evil demands a thorough critique of how Proclus and other Platonists read the seminal passages in certain dialogues which they thought contained Plato's treatment of evil.

Keywords: De malorum subsistentia (DMS); Platonism; Proclus' doctrine
