Proclus on Know Thyself

Proclus' Commentary on the Alcibiades explores the Delphic exhortation "Know Thyself", showing how this is central to human progress.


Proclus - the great 5th century AD head of the Athenian Academy - wrote a wide-ranging commentary on Plato's First Alcibiades. We will look at his comment on the very first line of the dialogue, which explores the exhortation "Know Thyself": Proclus shows how knowing oneself is the primary means by which we "revert" to our source and become an active link in the chain of causes and effects which underlies the whole of reality.

Entrance in free, but donations between £3-5 will be welcomed.
