2018-10-01 NSPRM - Proclus - Theology of Plato (Book 1, Chap 22) - Illuminations from on High: Translating Sufficient, Principle, DelicatePierre Grimes and the Noetic Society (2018-10-01)Dialogue(s): theology-of-plato;elements-of-theology Chapters: book01;chap22;prop30;prop31 Attendees: Pierre, Barbara, JulieH, Nancy (at the end) Synopsis Pierre leads our NS Parmenides morning study group through a reading of Proclus' Theology of Plato (*). This morning we are still on Book 1, Chapter 22 of the Theology, and a translation of the word, "principle" takes us into a reading of propositions 30, 31, and others, of Proclus' Elements of Theology(+) . Note from Barbara Hi, Jeff Julie, Pierre and I were present. Eldar was sick. We went into the end of Chapter 22 to further explore the sufficient. Then we went into Proclus' Elements, Proposition 30--5 and proposition 22 to explore the difference principle or arxh and cause. Pierre pointed out that Dodds doesn't translate ontos forms as Beings, but existences. In Proposition 30 and 31, I believe, Dodds adds the word "principle" and Juan adds, "cause". Pierre did a little chart work which Pierre put up to make clear the concept of principle. (+) We are reading both from E.R. Dodds' translation of the Elements of Theology (my copy is 2nd edition, ISBN-10: 0198141602), and from the Balboa translation . PG to Nancy at the end: What word would you use to describe the illuminations from on High, proceeding/pouring down to you?
