The Philosopher and Society in Late Antiquity: Essays in Honour of Peter Brown

Some brief overview of book

The philosophers of Late Antiquity have sometimes appeared to be estranged from society. We must flee everything physical is one of the most prominent ideas taken by Augustine from Platonic literature. This collection of new studies by leading writers on Late Antiquity treats both the principles of metaphysics and the practical engagement of philosophers.

It points to a more substantive and complex involvement in worldly affairs than conventional handbooks admit. Andrew Smith is Professor and Head of the Department of Classics at University College, Dublin.
