This volume gathers an international team of renowned scholars in the fields of ancient greek philosophy, in order to explore the continuous but changing dialogue between Platonism and Aristotelianism from the early imperial age to the end of Antiquity. While most chapters concern Platonists (Philo, Plutarch, Plotinus, Syrianus, Proclus, Damascius, Philoponus), and their uses or criticism of Aristotle’s doctrines, several chapters are also devoted to Peripatetic authors (Boethius and mostly Alexander of Aphrodisias) and their attitudes towards Plato’s positions. Each of the eleven chapters draws the attention to specific polemical contexts and philosophical problems which made Platonists and Aristotelians unite against common adversaries like the Stoics, or split up, not only in the fields of metaphysics and cosmology, but also in epistemology, psychology and ethics.
Most papers in this volume were presented and discussed during the fourth Diatribai di Gargnano, a series of conferences about ancient philosophy, especially Platonism, from the hellenistic period to late Antiquity, organized jointly by the Università degli Studi di Milano, the Université Paris-Sorbonne and the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven.
