Title:
Rhetoric More Geometrico in Proclus' Elements of Theology and Boethius' De Hebdomadibus
Authors:
Bovell, Carlos R.
Abstract:
My thesis inquires into the reasons behind Proclus' and Boethius' adaptation of discussion more geometrico in their metaphysical works, Elements of Theology and De Hebdomadibus, respectively. My argument is that each philosopher is engaged in a spiritual exercise to the effect that each sought, in his own way, to predispose readers to the anagogical acceptance of profound matters of faith.
