I've found Georgius Trebizuntius' LATIN translation of his preface to his translation of the Parmenides for Cusa. It's for research that I'm doing regarding the Humanist Renaissance in the 15th Century. But I don't have time to translate it to read it! Can somebody help please? Is there an english translation anywhere that I don't know about? I'm going to try to include it in this post. It's on Page 11. Thanks a lot It's located here... http://www.archive.org/details/platospa ... 00klibuoft

Maybe someone can do a quick translation? I'd really appreciate it

Hi pythagoras,

i think there is some concern that this may amount to us doing your homework for you. Certainly if you do have the capacity to translate it, why shouldn't you do it yourself? Time pressure is part of the university learning experience, no?

I am not doing this for a University, but for personal research...I wouldn't TAKE money for their indoctrination. Thanks anyway though. I guess I'll just translate it myself...it'll take longer this way though...

I wouldn't mind translating it, but it would help if you could exerpt the Latin text in question, as I'm not exactly sure where the part is you're talking about.

Edit: I found the preface, so let me know if you still need it. Kasper is right to point out that this is a big favor, but since I'm interested in the material anyways I don't see any harm in it. I would only ask that any such translations be free to the public/acknowledged.
