Der Protreptikos des Iamblich
Rekonstruktion, Refragmentarisierung und Kontextualisierung mit TextminingDigital Classics Books
This book combines several articles, which analyse the Protreptikos by Iamblichus with different text mining methods. With these methods the authors try to find new aspects for the discourse in classical studies about the relationship between the Protreptikos by Iamblichus, Aristotle’s Protreptikos and Plato’s writings.
Iamblichus’ Protreptikos is concerned with Pythagoras’ theory and for that purpose he discusses philosophical trends of the classical antiquity. Hence many citations of classical philosophers can be found in the text. For this reason the authors use the citation-analysis and the cooccurrence-analysis, text mining tools provided by the portal eAQUA, and give a new perspective on citation methods in Iamblichus’ Protreptikos.
