The Anatomy of Neoplatonism was the crowning achievement of A. C. Lloyd, the distinguished scholar of late ancient philosophy. He offers a rich and authoritative study of this school of thought, which was highly influential not only on subsequent philosophy but also on Christian theology. Hisdiscussion ranges over metaphysics, epistemology, logic, and language, and reveals the fundamental structure of Neoplatonist thought; the book is essential reading for all who work in this area. Lloyd shows that while Neoplatonism is not a modern philosophy, it is indeed philosophy in the modernsense. 'A comprehensive study of Neoplatonism . . . from the pen of A. C. Lloyd is greatly to be welcomed . . . a worthy and valuable culmination of many years of thought' International Studies in Philosophy 'interesting and important . . . very rewarding' Times Literary Supplement 'the new view of Neoplatonism that the book offers is one that is worth having' Bryn Mawr Classical Review 'this book can be expected to become a fruitful basis of discussion as the philosophical exploration of Neoplatonic metaphysics develops' Review of Metaphysics 'learned and fascinating . . . I doubt whether any other living scholar could have written so effectively on Neoplatonism in this way' Contemporary Philosophical Reviews
A. C. Lloyd was Professor of Philosophy at the University of Liverpool from 1957 to 1983, and Emeritus Professor thereafter.
