Plotinus on the Soul

Full Product Description

Plotinus on the Soul is a study of Plotinus' psychology, which is arguably the most sophisticated Platonist theory of the soul in antiquity. Plotinus offers a Platonist response to Aristotelian and Stoic conceptions of the soul that is at the same time an innovative interpretation of Plato's Timaeus. He considers the notion of the soul crucial for explaining the rational order of the world. To this end, he discusses not only different types of individual soul (such as the souls of the stars, human and animal souls) but also an entity that he was the first to introduce into philosophy: the so-called 'hypostasis Soul'. This is the first study to provide a detailed explanation of this entity, but it also discusses the other types of soul, with an emphasis on the human soul, and explains Plotinus' original views on rational thought and its relation to experience.

Plotinus on the Soul by Damian Caluori was published by Cambridge University Press in June 2015. The ISBN for Plotinus on the Soul is 9781107105959.
