Thomas Taylor's translations into English of ancient works of sacred philosophy are long treasured. Prometheus Trust has reissued many of them. This volume consists of Taylor's translations of Lucius Apuleius' major works dealing with these themes:

  • The Metamorphosis, or Golden Ass
  • On The God of Socrates
  • On the Philosophy of Plato (Cosmology, Ethics, and Logic -'Peri Hermenaius').

The editors have also included in this volume Taylor's poetical paraphrase of the speech of Diotima in Plato's Banquet.
