Prometheus Trust's reprints of hermetic philosophy and pagan theology are treasures. This volume is the first-ever reprint of Thomas Taylor's translation of Dissertations. Maximus Tyrius was a leading `Middle-Platonist' who lived and worked in a period prior to that of the great Plotinus. His 41 dissertations deal with some profound philosophical and moral problems in a simple, but delightful and approachable manner. This book includes Thomas Taylor's own notes on the work, along with his essay 'The Triumph of the Wise Man over Fortune', in an appendix.
