Chapter Summary

This book is the outcome of a research project entitled &t;The Reception of Plato's Cratylus in Antiquity: Ancient Theories of Language and Naming&t;, which was undertaken with the financial support of the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) between 2001 and 2006.This study aims at making up for this neglect by reconstructing the outlines of Proclus' discussion of the Cratylus. This book will not be just about Proclus' Commentary on the Cratylus. Therefore, this study will not treat Proclus' Commentary on the Cratylus in isolation, but will discuss it within the wider context of philosophical reflections on language in Antiquity in general and the history of the reception of the Cratylus in particular.Proclus' interpretation of the Cratylus is the topic of special chapter.His influence on the very last of the philosophers should not be underestimted.

Keywords: commentary; etymology; language; Philosophia Antiqua-Aseries; Philosophy; Proclus' interpretation; Studies
