Description:

What can the ancient philosophy of Plotinus (204-270 A.D.) teach us today? Drawing parallels with other wisdom traditions of the East and West, Uždavinys emphasizes that Plotinus’ philosophy was not a purely mental or rational exercise, but a complete way of life incorporating the spiritual virtues. Plotinus, the renowned Egyptian sage and philosopher of the classical world, is widely regarded as the founder of the school of Neo-Platonism, which sought to revive the teachings of Plato. This book provides an extensive introduction to Plotinus’ teachings and an informative commentary on the Enneads. Also included is a commentary by Plotinus’ leading disciple, Porphyry (c. 233-305 A.D.) on an enigmatic passage from Homer’s epic, the Odyssey.
 
________________________________________________
 
Plotinus (Greek: Πλωτῖνος) (ca. A.D. 204–270) was a major philosopher of the ancient world who is widely considered the founder of Neoplatonism (along with his teacher Ammonius Saccas). Neoplatonism was an influential philosophy in Late Antiquity. Much of our biographical information about Plotinus comes from Porphyry's preface to his edition of Plotinus' Enneads. His metaphysical writings have inspired centuries of Pagan, Christian, Jewish, Islamic and Gnostic metaphysicians and mystics.
