Item description for Der Platoniker Tauros in Der Darstellung Des Aulus Gellius (Philosophia Antiqua) (German Edition) by Marie-Luise Lakmann...

Aulus Gellius' accounts of his studies in Athens are a major source for the personality of Taurus the Platonic philosopher of the 2nd century A.D. and besides, give important insights into the history of Platonic school of that time. The present work puts together Gellius' reports on the Middle Platonist for the first time and -- by its detailed commentary -- offers a new understanding of contents, form and methods of his philosophical instructions, of the relationship between teacher and students, and of student life in the 2nd century A.D. in general. By this means numerous topics in ancient philosophy, philology, science, and pedagogics are dealt with. Finally the results thus gained are combined with all remaining literary and epigraphic evidence, so that a lively portrait of Taurus as a philosophical teacher emerges. A collection of testimonies and fragments concerning Taurus' life and work, a comprehensive bibliography, and indices complete the work. FR Die Berichte des Aulus Gellius uber seinen Studienaufenthalt in Athen sind eine bedeutende Quelle fur das Personlichkeitsbild des Platonikers Taurus (2.Jh.n.Chr.) und vermitteln wichtige Einblicke in die Geschichte der platonischen Schule dieser Zeit. Das vorliegende Werk stellt zum ersten Mal die Berichte des Gellius uber den Mittelplatoniker zusammen und vermittelt durch ihre ausfuhrliche Kommentierung wertvolle neue Einsichten in Inhalt, Form und Methoden seiner philosophischen Erziehung, uber das Verhaltnis des Lehrers zu seinen Schulern sowie uber das Studentenleben im 2. Jh.n.Chr. uberhaupt. Dabei kommen zahlreiche Themengebiete der antiken Philosophie, Philologie, Naturwissenschaft und Padagogik zur Sprache. Die so gewonnenen Ergebnisse werden abschlieend unter Berucksichtigung aller ubrigen literarischen und inschriftlichen Quellen zu einem lebendigen Bild des philosophischen Lehrers Tauros zusammengefugt. Eine Sammlung der Testimonien und Fragmente des Tauros, eine umfangreiche Bibliographie und Indices vervollstandigen das Werk.
