Students of Plotinus have tended to concentrate on the higher regions of his world, and there is still no satisfactory treatment of his doctrines of the embodied soul. It is the purpose of this book to provide a fairly extensive survey of these doctrines.

Conversations with a friend in the summer after high school in awoken me, as Kant said of his reading Hume, from my dogmatic slumber. At the time my friend was something of a devotee of Plotinus, having studied him in a metaphysics class.

The book provides an outline of Plotinus’ life and of the composition of the Enneads, placing Plotinus in the intellectual context of his time. #CarlJung, Aion, Edward F.
