Read full description of the books:



I read this book to understand how philosophy fared during the Dark Ages. The interesting angle Marenbon explores is that scholars of Late Antiquity (the Dark Ages) had a few ancient texts to work with but not all of them. For example, they had Plato's Timaeus but nothing else by him. As a result, Plato's overall philosophy could not be understood. With only a handful of ancient texts at their disposal it was difficult to distinguish Platonism from neo-Platonism, and to separate philosophy from theology as separate pursuits. In the preface Marenbon, as a matter of scholarship, questions the value of trying to impose this distinction anyway, although he does attempt it in the text. I'm glad to report that the author did a good job explaining how this gap in Western philosophy transpired. His book is lucid and easy to read.
