Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Eusebius of Myndus was a 4th century AD philosopher, a distinguished Neoplatonist. He is described by Eunapius as one of the links in the "Golden Chain" of Neoplatonism.

He was a pupil of Aedesius of Pergamum. He devoted himself principally to logic and ventured to criticize the magical and theurgic side of the doctrine. By this he exasperated the later Emperor Julian, who preferred the mysticism of Maximus and Chrysanthius.

Stobaeus collected a number of ethical dicta of one Eusebius, who may perhaps be identical with the Neoplatonist.

EUSEBIUS [OF MYNDUS], Greek philosopher, a distinguished Neoplatonist and pupil of Aedesius who lived in the time of Julian, and who is described by Eunapius as one of the "Golden Chain" of Neoplatonism. He ventured to criticize the magical and theurgic side of the doctrine, and exasperated the emperor, who preferred the mysticism of Maximus and Chrysanthius. He devoted himself principally to logic. Stobaeus in the Sermones collected a number of ethical dicta of one Eusebius, who may perhaps be identical with the Neoplatonist.

The fragments have been collected by Mullach in his Fragmenta Phil. Graec., and by Orelli, in Opuscula veter. graec. sentent. et moral.
