Reviews

`Federico M. Petrucci offers a lucid and fascinating overview of Calvenus Taurus, a thinker who played an important, and so far unnoticed, role in the history of post-Hellenistic philosophy. Through a fresh analysis of extant sources, he brilliantly shows that Taurus did radically reshape the coordinates of Platonism, especially in the fields of cosmology and theology, and at the same time makes a case for the existence of a distinctive methodological core of Middle Platonist exegesis. Written in a clear style and singularly rich in its conclusions, this book will certainly become a reference point for all interested in the philosophy of the Imperial age.' Mauro Bonazzi, Universita degli Studi di Milano, Italy
