Astronomical science in Late Neoplatonism. A study of Proclus’ Hypotyposis astronomicarum positionum

My dissertation focuses on Proclus' Hypotyposis astronomicarum positionum. In order to answer the question why he devoted a whole work to astronomical hypotheses, it is crucial to understand his stance on astronomy from a broader perspective as well as the way in which his viewpoint is pertinent to the rest of the Neoplatonic tradition. By studying this treatise, in which the principles and methodology of philosophy and science are interwoven, I aim at shedding some light on the relationship between metaphysics and astronomy in late antiquity.
