Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Dyson has gathered what he believes is a nearly comprehensive collection of relevant texts on prolepsis and conception in Hellenistic philosophy and arranged them chronologically by source. He then uses that corpus to construct an outline of the doctrine of prolepsis and common conception in the early Stoa. Arguing that the doctrine largely parallels that of Epictetus, he demonstrates that prolepsis is an often unconscious but teleologically secured process by which humans derive conceptions of basic natural kinds and moral properties. The study served as his doctoral dissertation in philosophy at Emory University at an undisclosed date. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

This book offers a reconstruction of the early Stoic doctrine of prolepsis, revealing it to be much closer to Platonic recollection in certain respects than previously thought. The standard interpretation of prolepsis as preconceptions is inconsistent with their status as criteria of truth. Rather, prolepsis is a form of tacit knowledge that requires articulation and systematization. This reconstruction is supported by a comprehensive collection of texts relating to prolepsis from Epicurus to Alexander of Aphrodisias.
