Argument:“Byzantine Perspectives on Neoplatonism"

One of the differences between the intellectual history of the Latin West
and that of the Byzantine East stems from the fact that the Byzantine
intellectual elite not only had direct access to the Neoplatonic sources
in the original language but also, at times, showed a particular interest
in them.
The present panel welcomes contributions that focus on the "Byzantine
side" of the reception process of Neoplatonic authors from Late Antiquity
(= Early Byzantine Period) through to the Late Byzantine Period (15th
century and beyond). In particular, contributions should aim to identify
some specific questions and concerns that drew the interest of Byzantine
scholars from different periods towards Neoplatonic sources.
Which aspects of the Neoplatonic doctrine provoked responses from
Christian scholars during the Early Byzantine Period? Which questions
attracted the attention of a Byzantine polymath such as Michael Psellos
and his student John Italos in the 11th C..? What role did Neoplatonic
Philosophy play in the context of "Byzantine Humanism" in the 14th C.
(Nikephoros Gregoras and his circle)? Why would Georgios Gemistos (alias
Pletho) want to turn to Neoplatonic doctrines in the 15th C.?
