Product Description

Review

"This is certainly the best introduction to the philosophy of Plotinus in English, or perhaps in any language, which I have seen. The scholarship is exact and up-to-date ... The book has a properly contemplative element, springing from the author's, and Plotinus', deep conviction that the Platonic Form is valuable and delightful in and for itself and not only as a cause or explanation, which brings out the originality of the thought of Plotinus and its perennially stimulating quality." A.H. Armstrong, Professor Emeritus, Department of Classics, Dalhousie University. "L'auteur possède une rare intuition des interrelations entre les termes imagés, et il fait intervenir avec une remarquable acuité les symétries conceptuelles qui investissent la langue." Georges Leroux, Département de philosophie, Université du Quebec à Montréal.
