What Proclus says of ‘Every God’ (prop. 13) might be applied to it: ‘That which fulfils others and extends to others its free bestowals must itself be more than full … filled to overflowing.’ For it does make Proclus himself deeply readable, finds him a necessary place in the progress of philosophy, and extends his very interesting relations with earlier, later, and wide-ranging thought.’ (A. NAIRNE in The Journal of Theological Studies, 1936, p.184).
