Plotinus by Stephen MacKenna
Book DescriptionThis book is simply the most exalted translation of one of the finest products of the human mind. This edition makes it truly "the thinking person's Plotinus" as well: Endnotes compare MacKenna's original translation with hundreds of debatable revisions made by editors in editions published after his death, and show how other major translators (A H Armstrong, K S Guthrie, Thomas Taylor) handle these same passages. Bonus: a detailed appendix from Anthony Damiani's groundbreaking work with The Enneads.
