Ennead by Plotinus
Book DescriptionPlotinus (204/5-270 CE) was the first and greatest of Neoplatonic philosophers. His writings were edited by his disciple Porphyry, who published them many years after his master's death in six sets of nine treatises each (the Enneads). Plotinus regarded Plato as his master, and his own philosophy is a profoundly original development of the Platonism of the first two centuries of the Christian era and the closely related thought of the Neopythagoreans, with some influences from Aristotle and his followers and the Stoics, whose writings he knew well but used critically. He is a unique combination of mystic and Hellenic rationalist. His thought dominated later Greek philosophy and influenced both Christians and Moslems, and is still alive today because of its union of rationality and intense religious experience. In his acclaimed edition of Plotinus, Armstrong provides excellent introductions to each treatise. His invaluable notes explain obscure passages and give reference to parallels in Plotinus and others.

Books By Author Plotinus
Ennead III.6, Hardback (May 1995)
An English translation of Plotinus' seminal work in the development of early Western thought. The text offers detailed scholarly commentary on this area of Plotinus' philosophy, and should therefore be beneficial to those interested in ancient philosophy and early Christian theology.
Plotinus, Hardback (January 1992)
Contains endnotes that compare MacKenna's original translation with several debatable revisions made by editors after his death, and shows how other translators (A H Armstrong, K S Guthrie, Thomas Taylor) handled these same passages. This book also contains an appendix from Anthony Damiani's "The Enneads".
Enneads, Paperback (June 1991)
This massive work of synthesis is one of the classics of Western mysticism. Plotinus was the main expositor of neo-platonism, the last great movement of classical Greek philosophy. Plotinus's work blends Plato, Aristotle and earlier Greek philosophy into a new religious formulation.
