Read full description of the books:

La letteratura classica nasconde alcune gemme che, per circostanze varie, non sono neppur lontanamente conosciute in maniera adeguata al loro splendore. Una di tali gemme è L’antro delle Ninfe: in questo breve scritto, dedicato al commento di alcuni versi dell’Odissea sull’antro dove Odisseo nascose i ricchi doni dei Feaci, troviamo forse la condensazione suprema, nel minimo numero di parole, della sapienza simbolica dell’antichità classica. Quell’antro, ci spiega subito Porfirio, non si trova a Itaca né in alcun altro luogo. Quell’antro è geroglifico del mondo stesso, un’ostensione figurata della vita e della morte.

Read information about the author

Ebook L'antro delle Ninfe read Online! Porphyry's parents were Phoenician, and he was born in Tyre. His parents named him Malchus ("king") but his teacher in Athens, Cassius Longinus, gave him the name Porphyrius ("clad in purple"), possibly a reference to his Phoenician heritage, or a punning allusion to his name and the color of royal robes.

Porphyry of Tyre (Greek: Πορφύριος, Porphyrios, AD c. 234–c. 305) was a Neoplatonic philosopher who was born in Tyre. He edited and published the Enneads, the only collection of the work of his teacher Plotinus. He also wrote many works himself on a wide variety of topics. His Isagoge, or Introduction, is an introduction to logic and philosophy,and in Latin translation it was the standard textbook on logic throughout the Middle Ages. In addition, through several of his works, most notably Philosophy from Oracles and Against the Christians, he was involved in a controversy with a number of early Christians, and his commentary on Euclid's Elements was used as a source by Pappus of Alexandria.
