Tutor description

Proclus is clearly committed to saying that these sciences and their objects somehow depend for their existence on the soul, and yet that such objects are themselves real and substantial. Although such a view of the relation between mathematicals and the soul places him squarely within the Platonic tradition, his "superrealism" is peculiar to late Neoplatonism. (3) (4)
