Abstract

Several questions concerning this work have attracted scholarly dispute. Is it a commentary or only a set of notes? Is it from the voice of Syrianus or did the author listed in the manuscript, Hermias of Alexandria, subsequently add original material of his own? Evidence that would help to resolve these issues is in short supply, and for the purposes of this volume we can usually set them aside, and concentrate on the ways in which it illuminates the ancient reception of Plato. The in Phaedrum provides us with a unique perspective on such matters, and therein requires examination here regardless of intractable issues of authorship.
