Vrin, , The Aquinate consigns that including in the divine interior, emanation is an order of origin between coincidents or concurrents; in the divine exterior, emanation is an order of origin between incoincidents, be it in the entitative plane according to the order from essence to existence, and from the faculties to the substance , or be it in the operative plane according to the order from faculties to act.
In this work, only the topics concerned with the entitative level are dealt with, which express two orders of emanation: that of creatures as such and that of the faculties. It can be concluded that it is not only a free and fragmentary translation of the last three Enneads, but also that it constitutes an attempt to explain the text, leaving aside some conflictive points for a believer.
The manner in which the ancients dealt with the intellect apprehending itself, took them into both the metaphysical and epistemological domains with reflections on questions of thinking, identity and causality. This study traces the origins from which the concept of self-intellection springs, beginning with Parmenides and by examining Plato's account of the epistemic subject and the emergence of self-intellection through the Aristotelian account, before the final part of the book explores the problem of how the intellect apprehends itself and its resolution.
The study concludes that Plotinus recasts the metaphysical structures of Plato and Aristotle in such a way that he outlines self-intellection in an entirely new light and offers a solution to the problem. This study deals with the notions of theory and practice as found in Aristotle, Plotinus, and Marx -- whose philosophies also informed and underpinned the discourse of various theologians.
Their perspectival notions are presented and explained through contextual or geographical rootedness. Tensions identified in the variations of meaning and prioritization of either theory or practice in these authors are highlighted and traced from contextuality which is itself generative of specific characteristics of philosophies -- also important for the orientations and directions of Christian theologies.

Bryden, London, New York, Routledge, , In addition, I claim that Porphyry's Isagoge and commentaries on the Categories start by adopting Plotinus's point of view, including his notion of genus, and proceed by explaining its consequences for a more detailed reading of the Categories.
In this article, the author wants to draw the way which led to the Plotinus's conception of dialectic, to show that it results in principal of an original synthesis between Platonic dialectic and Aristotle's comprehension of relations between type, kind and difference. So, Plato's dialectic consists in determining our thought to grab an idea, and it acts by progressive determinations of an original indecision. This claims the creativeness of the dialectician, his capacity to adapt to the most diverse situations and to use them to provoke the discovery of appropriate differences.
In exchange, for Plotinus, dialectic is the method which allows to recover and to go through the life of intelligence, by discursive reconstruction. Because it reproduces this division which already exists before her, the movement of dialectic becomes somewhat automatic. It is in the sense that they can speak about "autonomy" of dialectic regarding the dialectician, because the principle of dialectical movement is not any more in the dialectician, but in intelligence.
Gregory Palamas' critique of the doctrine of Plotinus and Proclus on the world soul [English abstract of Greek text]", Philosophia Ath. Versiones Latinae temporis resuscitatarum litterarum, 14 , Neudr. That Plotinus and Porphyry lie behind Synesius' " De insomniis " is generally agreed, but it can be shown that two chapters in particular derive from Plotinus, either directly or perhaps through the intermediary of a commentary.
These chapters contain a certain amount of interpretation on Synesius' part of the material he draws from Plotinus and in addition a great deal of rhetorical embellishment and amplification. Whether in the rest of the " De insomniis " Synesius is so directly dependent on a single source that he then reworks and embellishes is hard to say.
Gregory Palamas was a strong opponent of "Greek" philosophers such as Socrates, Plato, Plotinus and Proclus, whom he regarded as possessed by wicked demons, who made their minds full of blatantly foolish doctrines. In the Capita ch. The aim of this paper is to examine whether and, if so, how far, the Augustinian notion of malum is related to Plotinus's concept of evil, as it appears in Ennead I.
The Augustinian notion of evil will be analyzed by focusing on the De natura boni, considering plurality and unity in Augustine's identification of malum and nihil, both in their ontological and axiological dimensions. Topics selected for special consideration will be, first, evil as lack of modus, species and ordo naturalis De nat. The second part will analyze Plotinus's notion of evil, as spelled out in Ennead I, 8 51 , considering the Plotinian identity of kakon and me on. Topics selected for analysis will be, first, the concept of evil as lack of measure, form and order Enn.
The third part of this paper will consider the differences between Augustine's and Plotinus's identity of evil and nonbeing, as related to the notion of matter. Topics selected for analysis will be, firstly, Plotinus's identity of matter and evil Enn. The conclusion will bring out how Plotinus's concept of steresis suggests both a different relation between evil and nonbeing while being closely resembling Augustine's pattern of malum and nihil. A chapter is devoted to Plotinus. This comparative study views the structure of Plotin's metaphysical doctrine of three hypostases and Gregory of Nyssa's Trinitarian doctrine on the basis of analysis of one term 'kivnhsi'.
With this regard the author discusses also the development of metaphysical motion's idea in Greek philosophy before and after Plotin. Beside the Platonic tradition the Judaic- Alexandrian theology is considered as an immediate source of Nyssa's as well as of Gregory of Naziansen's dynamic interpretation of Trinitarian Deity. The innovation in divine motion's idea in Patristic theology and the principle difference from Plotin is considered to be an open dynamics of Christian God that opposes the introvert character of metaphysical motion in Enneades.
The paper is a part of systematic research into the transformation of the philosophical term 'kivnhsi' into the theological one in Nyssa, thus completing the research of the same term's cosmological sense in: T. Drobner, A. Viciano, Leiden, Brill , Thus, Zhu Xi does not accept the dualism by which Plato opposed to the rational forms an irrational material principle, and does not share Aristotle's irreducible dualism between form and prime matter, or his teleology. Neither does he share Plotinus's indifference to the empirical world.
Understanding how these similarities and differences play out against one another will help us discover what is at stake in their various commitments. I, kannte und zitierte.

Seine Modifikationen der plotinischen Gedanken sind fast dieselben wie die Gregors von Nyssa. Platonic and Aristotelian Resources of the Plotinian Dialectics Abstract The main purpose of the present paper is to shed some light on some concepts found in the Plotinian account of the dialectics. It is clear that Plato and Aristotle's perspectives had certain influences in this case. Therefore the structure of this paper will be the following: concepts in Plato's dialectics, Aristotelian dialectical concepts, presentation of the plotinian dialectical concepts referring, when it is necessary, back to the source concepts found in Plato and Aristotle.
In the end we will see that Plotinus had some personal contributions and had a quite new perspective, different even from Plato, on certain characteristics of dialectics. When Plotinus says, in II, 1, 6, , that every element is a mixture, he does not necessarily refer to the well-known doctrine of Anaxagoras. In this case, his primary target is Numenius' analysis of Timaeus 31b.
The scope of this paper is first to explain the meaning of potential existence, actual existence, power and actuality according to Plotinus; and then investigate how, in the Enneads , these notions apply to the One, Intellect and Soul. We will see that Plotinus makes a coherent and consistent use of these notions throughout the corpus.

Although the medical, ethical, and intellectual models of cathartic clarity have been thoroughly explored, what bears closer scrutiny is Aristotle's use of the term pleasure, hedone, in the context of experiencing the pathemata of fear and pity. Both Plotinus and Aristotle base their descriptions of katharsis on an understanding of the individual as a living being undergoing continual aesthetic experiences and thus ethical conversions.
In this context, the experience of melodious song, tragic pathemata, colorful statuary, or persuasive oratory, are all agents of a cathartic affect or pleasure that is an actualization of an emergent potentiality. The notion of that which depends on us in Plotinus and its background , Philosophia antiqua, v. Leiden; Boston: Brill, Sihvola and T.
Engberg-Pedersen ed. Plotinus' combination of Platonic and Aristotelian psychologies may be intended to resolve some of the psychological difficulties each entailed, but the combination leads to entanglements of its own. Plotinus must give a plausible account of the emotions such that the soul is somehow involved in the affections without being affected itself. Readings of Plotinus e. The task of making the soul free from affection through philosophy is the task of eliminating involvement in the emotions, which is paramount to eliminating thoughts, opinions, or concerns that give rise to emotions.
Plotinus's thought is still hidden from us. The complexity of his ideas increases the abyss that separates us from understanding their texts. Yes, indeed, in Plotinus we can find the first great philosophical system, which ensures the ordered visibility of all items that are in his thought, but it is right there where the darkness of these elements is revealed. This system is constituted by two kinds of orders -- metaphysical and ethical -- acting as two sides of the same coin.
How to draw the line between these two worlds? Is that even possible? Interpretations of Emerson's theme of self-reliance which generate charges that he understood neither evil nor virtue are inappropriate. In Ennead VI. He found both sets of categories unacceptable for many reasons, but especially for their inapplicability to the intelligible realm of being which, for him, is more important than the realm of sensible becoming. The study examines critically the reasons for Plotinus's criticism of the Stoic doctrine of categories, to the logic of which he objected primarily because of its presupposed ontological materialism.
He found the Aristotelian doctrine of categories as a whole unacceptable for many reasons, but especially for its inapplicability to the intelligible realm of being and its superficiality regarding the sensible realm of becoming, for which it was intended.
The study examines critically Plotinus's reasons for such a radical reduction and such a Platonic innovation. This study traces the notion of the internal senses in three ancient authors, namely Nemesius, Plotinus and Galen. It begins with Nemesius, and then by going backward ends with Galen. The textual evidence investigated in this study shows clearly that Galen, after acknowledging the Platonic tripartite soul, locates the various dunameis of the soul in the brain.
The "localization" theory of Galen plays a crucial role in paving the way for the foundation of the internal senses, which both Plotinus and Nemesius adopted. Just as with the external senses one can locate various sense organs in different parts of the body, viz. Thus, philosophers are able to explain the role of all these different internal senses in their account of sense perception.

Le logos en tant que "discours" n'est-il pas l'instrument par excellence du philosophe? The aim of this paper is to analyse accurately occurrences of names as huparxis and hupostasis and of the verb huphistanai that could mean, according to Plotinus, the existence and the fact of existing. The word existence belatedly appears between the antiquity and the Middle Ages. Starting from the "first existence", that is the One-Good, that is not an ousia and it is identical to itself, all the other ontological levels are able to "get out of" or pro-cedere, aren't they?

Therefore, we need to show that the identity and the mone in itself of the "first existence" represent the conditio sine qua non of the existence of the different levels of existing and beings that "get out of it" and "derive from it" in a dynamic way. In his Commentary on the Timaeus Proclus says that in some occasions Plato speaks of a model from which the world is created that is identical to the Demiurge while in other occasions he suggests that the model is distinct from the Demiurge.
