I’ve added to the Philosophy page the text of the lecture I gave at the Department of Classics at Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia. This file includes the essay itself, “The Henadic Structure of Providence in Proclus”, as well as the introduction I wrote for it and delivered at the talk itself.
My thanks again to the faculty and students of the Department of Classics at Dalhousie for their gracious invitation, warm hospitality and intellectual stimulation.
