about

Imperial Plato presents new translations of three introductions to Plato’s thought from the second half of the second century CE: the Introduction to Plato by Albinus of Smyrna, Dissertation 11 of Maximus of Tyre, and On Plato and his Teaching by Apuleius of Madaurus. These three presentations of Plato’s ideas—one a Greek dialectic introduction with a suggested reading order for Plato's dialogues, another a Greek speech in the sophistic style of the time, and one a lengthy doxological study in Latin—are examples by three distinct authors using divergent methods of the assorted ways in which Plato and Platonism were understood and discussed during the revival of Hellenism and Greek Philosophy, and the period of the Roman Empire often referred to as the Second Sophistic. 
Ryan C. Fowler is a Visiting Professor of Classics at Franklin and Marshall College; he also teaches Koine Greek at Lancaster Theological Seminary. He is the author of Plato in the Third Sophistic (Millennium Studies, De Gruyter, 2014). He lives in Lancaster, PA with Amy and Milo.
