The full text of my dissertation, “The Metaphysics of Polytheism in Proclus,” is now available from the Philosophy page as a pdf file.

I’ve added to the Philosophy page the full text of an article I wrote for an anthology on Deleuze and/or Guattari and environmental thought. It looks somewhat odd amidst all the Platonism, but does in fact concern aspects of henology that my work on ancient philosophy has not been able to address yet—specifically, ethical individuation—and so it belongs here. Also, I’ve noticed that some readers of this site share my interest in Deleuze.

I’ve updated the project statement on the Philosophy page to include some remarks on the henadological theory of multiplicities or manifolds. The project statement will be updated as it becomes possible for me to infer general principles from my work on historical philosophers. In some cases, as with the theory of multiplicities, the project statement encapsulates ideas I’ve already explicated elsewhere and am prepared to consider as inherent to henadology as such; in other cases, as in the portion of the statement drawn from Metaphysics 987b18 & sq., I’m laying down the principles in advance, out of a preliminary intuition that they will prove to be henadologically essential.
