  1. De la Nature de la Surabondance du Premier Chez Plotin.AgnÉs Pigler - 2004 - Dialogue 43 (1):25-46.
    L’Un est «[...] la puissance de toutes choses ; si elle n’était pas, il n’y aurait pas d’univers, ni d’Intelligence, de vie première et universelle»Il est encore, dit Plotin, la puissance suprême, ineffable, immense, invincible, la source de tous les biens et la puissance qui engendre les êtresParce que sa puissance se communique, par le biais de sa surabondance, nous pouvons avoir de lui une intuition supra-intellectuelle.

  • Ratio in Subiecto? The Sources of Augustine’s Proof for the Immortality of the Soul in the Soliloquia and its Defense in De Immortalitate Animae.Christian Tornau - 2017 - Phronesis 62 (3):319-354.
    This paper argues that Augustine did not take the proof inSoliloquia2.22-4, which centers on the Aristotelian notion of ‘being in a subject’, from a single source but constructed it in a deliberately imperfect manner from several passages from Porphyry’s works on Aristotle’sCategoriesin order to supplement it with further arguments in Book Three. InDe immortalitate animaeAugustine explicitly discloses the weaknesses of the proof and repairs them by means of a Neoplatonic notion of causality.

  • Philosophy of the Ancient Commentators on Aristotle.Miira Tuominen - 2012 - Philosophy Compass 7 (12):852-895.
    From the first century BCE onwards, philosophers started to write commentaries on those Aristotle’s treatises that were meant for the internal use of his school. Plato’s works had been commented on already earlier, the first reported commentary originates in the 300s BCE. Commentaries are treatises that follow an object text in a more or less linear fashion. The format was not unknown before the first century BCE but new in extensive philosophical use. This review essay focuses on authors who commented (...)

  • Causa Prima Et Esse Dans le Liber de Causis Selon Thomas d'Aquin Et Siger de Brabant.David Piché - 1999 - Dialogue 38 (1):75-98.
    ABSTRACT: After a presentation of the main onto-theological theses contained in the Liber de causis, the author explains how they were received and interpreted by Thomas Aquinas and Siger of Brabant in their respective commentaries on the short treatise "de primis causis rerum." Starting from a mistranslation of the word "yliathim," Thomas "injects" into the De causis his own doctrine of the distinction between being and essence. As for Siger, while he is often regarded as an adversary of Thomas Aquinas, (...)

  • The Rhetoric of Religious Conflict in Arnobius’ Adversvs Nationes.Konstantine Panegyres - 2019 - Classical Quarterly 69 (1):402-416.
    In this paper I discuss the ways in which the early Christian writer Arnobius of Sicca used rhetoric to shape religious identity inAduersus nationes. I raise questions about the reliability of his rhetorical work as a historical source for understanding conflict between Christians and pagans. The paper is intended as an addition to the growing literature in the following current areas of study: the role of local religion and identity in the Roman Empire; the presence of pagan elements in Christian (...)

  • The First Principle in Late Neoplatonism: A Study of the One's Causality in Proclus and Damascius.Jonathan Greig - 2017 - Dissertation, Ludwig Maximilian University, Munich
    One of the main issues that dominates Neoplatonism in late antique philosophy of the 3rd–6th centuries A.D. is the nature of the first principle, called the ‘One’. From Plotinus onward, the principle is characterized as the cause of all things, since it produces the plurality of intelligible Forms, which in turn constitute the world’s rational and material structure. Given this, the tension that faces Neoplatonists is that the One, as the first cause, must transcend all things that are characterized by (...)

  • Multiplicidad y unidad de la inteligencia en las sentecias de Porfirio.José María Zamora Calvo - 2011 - Synthesis (la Plata) 18:45-74.
    Las Sentencias de Porfirio, que constituyen un compendio de las Enéadas de Plotino, incluyen una revisión del locus vexatus de platonismo del siglo III, que tiene su origen en la interpretación de un controvertido pasaje del Timeo, 39e. Revisaremos los antecedentes de Porfirio, bajo la influencia de Longino, y la polémica suscitada con Plotino y Amelio a su llegada a Roma. Su posterior "retractación" le lleva a aceptar que la Inteligencia se identifica con la multiplicidad de los inteligibles que intelige. (...)

  • TOWARDS A PHENOMENOLOGY OF SAGESSE: Uncovering the Unique Philosophical Problematic of Pierre Hadot.Matthew Sharpe - 2018 - Angelaki 23 (2):125-138.
    This paper starts from the contention that Pierre Hadot’s unusually divided reception reflects the different dimensions of Hadot’s own scholarly profile. Hadot’s largely favourable reception amongst historians of ideas responds to the philological dimension of his work, but misses the implicit normativity involved in his recovery of the sense of ancient philosophy as a way of life. Analytic critics have registered but contested this normativity in ways that arguably also misrepresent his work. This paper contends that both receptions of Hadot (...)

  • Porphyry, Universal Soul and the Arabic Plotinus.Cristina D'Ancona Costa - 1999 - Arabic Sciences and Philosophy 9 (1):47.
    Scholars working in the field of Graeco-Arabic Neoplatonism often discuss the role Porphyry, the editor of Plotinus, must be credited with in the formation of the Arabic Plotinian corpus. A note in this corpus apparently suggests that Porphyry provided a commentary to the so-called Theology of Aristotle, i.e., parts of some treatises of Enneads IV-VI. Consequently, Porphyry has been considered as responsible for the doctrinal shifts which affect the Arabic Plotinian paraphrase with respect to the original text. This article aims (...)

  • Socratic Ironies: Reading Hadot, Reading Kierkegaard.Matthew Sharpe - 2016 - Sophia 55 (3):409-435.
    This paper examines the seemingly unlikely rapport between the ‘Christian existentialist’, radically Protestant thinker, Søren Kierkegaard and French classicist and historian of philosophy, Pierre Hadot, famous for advocating a return to the ancient pagan sense of philosophy as a way of life. Despite decisive differences we stress in our concluding remarks, we argue that the conception of philosophy in Hadot as a way of life shares decisive features with Kierkegaard’s understanding of the true ‘religious’ life: as something demanding existential engagement (...)
