was arguably the most important text in the curriculum of the Neo-Platonists, and is the key to understanding their philosophy. The influence of Proclus' commentary was immense.... Morrow and Dillon's translation will stand as a landmark in Neo-Platonic literature."--Lucas Siorvanes, Journal of Hellenic Studies
"Few now would turn to the commentary of Proclus, head of the Academy in the fifth century A,D. primarily in order to understand Plato. Nevertheless, the work is of great importance for the light it sheds on the interpretation of the dialogue by Proclus and his predecessors.... [Scholars] have increasingly devoted attention to the way in which elaboration of the Neoplatonic metaphysical system went hand in hand with more and more complex interpretations of the hypotheses of Parmenides 137ff."--Anne Sheppard, The Times Higher Education Supplement
