    St. Proclus
    Patriarch of Constantinople Saint Proclus died in 446 or 447. Proclus came to the fore in the time of Atticus , the Patriarch of Constantinople who succeeded (406) Arsacius who had been intruded upon the patriarchal throne after the violent deposition of St. John Chrysostom (404). "Proclus was a Lector at a very early age, and, assiduously frequenting the Schools , became devoted to the study of rhetoric. On attaining manhood he was in the habit of constant intercourse with Atticus , having been constituted his secretary" ( Socrates , "H.E.", VII, xl). From Atticus he received the diaconate and priesthood (ibid.). When Atticus died (425), there was a strong party in favour of Proclus, but Sissinius was eventually chosen as his successor Sissinius appointed him Archbishop of Cyzicus ; but the Cyzicans chose a bishop of their own, and no attempt was made to force Proclus upon a reluctant people. Sissinius died at the end of 427, and again Proclus was likely to be appointed to the patriarchate , but eventually Nestorius was chosen.

    Neoplatonism is a modern term used to designate the period of Platonic philosophy beginning with the work of Plotinus Gnosticism and the Hermetic tradition. A major factor in this syncretism, and one which had an immense influence on the development of Platonic thought, was the introduction of the Jewish Scriptures into Greek intellectual circles via the translation known as the Septuagint Timaeus Enneads

    Plotinus , is responsible for the grand synthesis of progressive Christian and Gnostic ideas with the traditional Platonic philosophy. He answered the challenge of accounting for the emergence of a seemingly inferior and flawed cosmos from the perfect mind of the divinity by declaring outright that all objective existence is but the external self-expression of an inherently contemplative deity known as the One ( to hen ), or the Good (

He was born in Lycia but spent most of his life at Athens, succeeding to the headship of the Academy. He was a prolific writer and a scholar of vast learning, so much so that it has been doubted whether all the works that have come down under his name can be genuinely his. Writing as a Neoplatonist (and influenced by the superstitions of his time), he gives in his Elements of Theology a concise summary of Neoplatonist metaphysics; he wrote commentaries on several Platonic dialogues as well as on the works of earlier mathematicians including Euclid. His literary works include a book of hymns, scholia on Hesiod's Works and Days , and a Chrēstomathia (‘summary of useful knowledge’), a handbook of literature, of which only an epitome exists. It has been thought that this last work, important for preserving summaries of six poems of the Epic Cycle dealing with the Trojan War, may be the work of an earlier Proclus.

    Proclus: Metaphysical Elements (Part 2)
    Every God who is more universal and ranks nearer to the First, is participated by a more universal genus of beings. But the God who is more partial and more remote from the First, is participated by a more partial genus of be­ings. And as being is related to being, so is unity to di­vine unity.
    57. The source of the argument is in the Parmenides. See Plotinus: En. VI. 6. 9 sqq.; Proclus in Plat. Theol. III. 1 sq.; III. 13. For if there are as many beings as there are unities, and vice versa, and one unity is participated by one be­ing, it is evident that the order of beings proceeds ac­cording to the order of the unities, being assimilated to the order prior to beings: and more universal beings are connascent with more universal unities, but more partial beings with more partial unities. For if this were not the case, again similars would be conjoined with dissimilars, and there would not be a distribution according to worth. These things, however, are impos­sible: since from the divine unities the one and appro­priate measure shines forth, and proceeds from them to all other natures. Much more, therefore, will there be an order of participation in these, similars depending on similars, according to power.

    Proclus's Life and Teachings
    Proclus' life
    Proclus Diadochus (410/412 - 485 c.e.) was the last of the great Platonic teachers. Born in Constantinople into a well-off family, he was sent to Alexandria for schooling and was taught philosophy by the Aristotlean philosopher Olympiodorus the Elder, and mathematics by Heron (not to be confused with a more famous mathematician of the same name). It seemed he was not satisfied there, for while still a teenager he moved to Athens where he studied at Plato's Academy under the philosophers Plutarch and Syrianus. He was soon teaching at the Academy, and succeeded Syrianus as administrator of the Athenian School, eventually becoming director, a position he held for the rest of his life. The title Diadochus was given to him at this time, the meaning of the word being successor. He refined and systematize the teachings of Iamblichus, whose school stressed elaborate metaphysical speculation. As well as being a poet, philosopher, and scientist, Proclus was also an exponent of religious universalism. He believed the true philosopher should pay homage to the gods of all nations, becoming "a priest of the entire universe." He was initiated into a number of mystery schools, composed

    Collected quotations on science and mathematics.
    Quotations by Proclus
    According to most accounts, geometry was first discovered among the Egyptians, taking its origin from the measurement of areas. For they found it necessary by reason of the flooding of the Nile, which wiped out everybody's proper boundaries. Nor is there anything surprising in that the discovery both of this and of the other sciences should have had its origin in a practical need, since everything which is in process of becoming progresses from the imperfect to the perfect.
    On Euclid The Pythagoreans considered all mathematical science to be divided into four parts: one half they marked off as concerned with quantity, the other half with magnitude; and each of these they posited as twofold. A quantity can be considered in regard to its character by itself or in relation to another quantity, magnitudes as either stationary or in motion. Arithmetic, then, studies quantity as such, music the relations between quantities, geometry magnitude at rest, spherics magnitude inherently moving.
    A Commentary on the First Book of Euclid's Elements Wherever there is number, there is beauty.

    12. Proclus
    Biographie succincte du philosophe n oplatonicien par Jean-Marie Nicolle.
    Proclus (412-486)
    Proclus est le plus célèbre des philosophes de l'école néoplatonicienne. Presque toutes ses oeuvres nous sont parvenues, dont le Commentaire sur le premier livre des Eléments d' Euclide , son chef d'oeuvre. Grâce à cet ouvrage qui commente notamment les définitions géométriques d'Euclide, on peut se faire une idée précise de la définition métaphysique que Proclus donne aux objets mathématiques. Proclus compare la pensée à un miroir-plan : "Il faut entendre le plan pour ainsi dire comme préétabli et placé devant les yeux, la pensée comme y décrivant toutes choses, et l'imagination assimilée en quelque sorte à un miroir plan sur lequel les concepts de la pensée renvoient leurs propres images." (PROCLUS, Commentaire sur le premier livres des Eléments d'Euclide , p. 109). On retrouve la même image chez N. de Cues : "l'âme regardant en elle-même, produit à la fois les concepts mathématiques et les sciences qui les étudient." ( De Mente , Herder, III, 554, et De Ludo Globi , Herder, III, 322).

It lies to the south of the prominent, terraced crater Macrobius , and west-northwest of the lava-flooded Yerkes . Between Proclus and Yerkes, on the edge of the mare , are the Promontories named Olivium and Lavinium. The rim of Proclus is distinctly polygonal in shape, having the shape of a pentagon , and does not rise very far above the surrounding terrain. It has a high albedo , being second only to Aristarchus in brightness. The interior wall displays some slumping, and the floor is uneven with a few small rises from slump blocks. The crater has a notable ray system that extends for a distance of over 600 kilometers. The rays display an asymmetry of form, with the most prominent being rays to the northwest, north-northeast, and northeast. There is an arc with no ejecta to the southwest. These features suggest an oblique impact at a low angle.

    By convention these features are identified on lunar maps by placing the letter on the side of the crater mid-point that is closest to Proclus.

    Proclus Lycaeus ( February 8 April 17 ), surnamed "The Successor" ( Greek ), was a Greek Neoplatonist philosopher Born to a rich family in Constantinople , he studied rhetoric philosophy and mathematics in Alexandria of Egypt . He came back to Constantinopole and was a successful lawyer for a short time. However as he preferred philosophy, he went to Athens in to study at the famous Academy which was founded 800 years before by Plato . He lived in Athens until the end of his life, except for a one year exile due to his political-philosophical activity which was not tolerated by the Christian regime. He became head master of Athens' School of Philosophy. His work can be divided in two parts. In the first part are his Memorandi on Plato's works, the first written when he was 28 years old: The Memorandum on Timaeus, on Plato's Republic , on Plato's Alcibiades , on Plato's Parmenides and on Plato's Cratylus. In these works, Proclus analyzes and restates Plato's thought - much misinterpreted and distorted at the time.

    Ancient Greek Philosophy
    The Ancient Greek philosophers have played a pivotal role in the shaping of the western philosophical tradition. This article surveys the seminal works and ideas of key figures in the Ancient Greek philosophical tradition from the Presocratics to the Neoplatonists. It highlights their main philosophical concerns and the evolution in their thought from the sixth century BCE to the sixth century CE. The Ancient Greek philosophical tradition broke away from a mythological approach to explaining the world, and it initiated an approach based on reason and evidence. Initially concerned with explaining the entire cosmos, the Presocratic philosophers strived to identify its single underlying principle. Their theories were diverse and none achieved a consensus, yet their legacy was the initiation of the quest to identify underlying principles.

    Dear Michael, Our New Freshman Class
    In Their Own Words
    "With the possible exception of Tiger Woods, nothing has had a worse year than global warming. We have discovered that a good portion of the science used to justify "climate change" was a hoax perpetrated by leftist ideologues with an agenda."
    Last night an unprecedented number of climate contrarians were swept into office. How did we get to such a place where attacking scientists and their work is not only acceptable, but helps win elections? And more importantly, what is UCS going to do about it? UCS is going to continue to expose these polluting industries and their cronies who knowingly mislead the public about climate science. And we're going to challenge them to get their facts straight. Because when it comes right down to it, the public's confidence in science and scientists remains high. In fact, just last night in California we saw a tangible example of science trumping industry spin, when voters thwarted an aggressive attempt by out-of-state oil companies to kill the state's landmark Global Warming Solutions Act.
