This chapter discusses the curriculum of texts stipulated in the Late Antique Neoplatonic schools as the material to be studied for the purpose of ascending the scales of virtue and sciences. The texts of Aristotle and Plato thought to correspond to political virtue and political science are identified, as are other texts related to these subjects. This produces a Neoplatonic ‘library’ of texts thought by Neoplatonic philosophers to relate to political philosophy.

Keywords:   curriculum, Neoplatonic school-texts, political texts, Aristotle, Plato
