One thought on “The Pythagorean Sourcebook and Library: An Anthology of Ancient Writings Which Relate to Pythagoras and Pythagorean Philosophy

  1. Dr. George H. Elder

    The text covers three renditions of Pythagoras life from various ancient authors, none of which were close contemporaries Many of the fragments, however, go back considerably than the biographies, and I found them especially illuminating Of course, there is a great deal of lore associated with Pythagoras, and one is left wondering what to believe Clearly the accounts of him being in two places at once and having a leg of gold cannot be true, despite the frequent citations of these supposed aspe [...]

    As I said about the Presocratics and Stoics in other reviews, all the writings of the first Pythagoreans and of Pythagoras have disappeared and the fragments attributed to Pythagoras are contested But, if not an exhaustive account of later Pythagorean writings and thought, this book is at least a thorough representative of such It includes the extant biographies of Pythagoras by Iamblichus, Porphyry and Laertius and the various quotations and aphorisms attributed to Pythagoras This book also ser [...]

    A collection of source materials on Pythagoras and Pythagoreanism in English translation The translations are rather old this is an augmented reprint of a book first published in 1920 It includes the Lives of Pythagoras written by Iamblicus, Porphyry, and Diogenes Laertius,and various fragments and testimonia from later Pythagoreans and neo Pythagoreans, Plato and Aristotle, and the Church Fathers There is some material on his mathematical and physical discoveries, but most of the material is on [...]

    To grasp the significance of pythagoras this is a great resource Pythagoras ideas have filtered through almost every field of mysticism kabbalah, Islamic even Hindu So a cmpilation of acient biograhies a collection of the surviving fragments from the Pythagoreans is tnan welcome.

  5. Christopher Murtagh

    I think this is the best collection of Pythagorean works and biographies I have found With a pretty great academic ish essay at the start which clarifies a lot of the Pythagorean philosophy and puts it into a historical context, and talks a bit about it s relevance for today.A lot of the stuff from other Pythagorean s is not so great, but the biographies, golden verses and symbols are essential You will find symbols than in a lot of the other collections.Worth getting for sure.

  6. David Melik

    According to the Theosophical Society who also sells this and my recollection of reading this, it is the largest, but possibly not complete except in bibliography, book of Pythagorean texts An interesting text it has IIRC is Pythagoras _Golden_Verses_

  7. James R. C.

    I prefer the original sources I enjoyed accessing, previewing and studying these Pythagorean references.

  8. Ra LoneWalker

    This book isn t what most people might think of as entertaining unless you enjoy history and particularly Pythagorean and Neopythagorean writings I enjoyed it throughly.
