1.0 out of 5 stars PLOTINUS IS JUST GREAT, 20 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Enneads (Classics) (Paperback)
I read a book on Plotinus called "The Essence of Plotinus" in 1988 and read it in India. In 1989-1990 I studied Plotinus with Richard Sorabji at King's College, LONDON. Sorabji was one of the few people I met who was willing to talk about the divine in a hearty way and write about things like mystical experience. I wrote a dissertation on Plotinus called "The Structure of awareness in the philosophy of Plotinus". I got a Ph.D. on Plotinus in 1997. I have published on Plotinus. My favourite essay I have written on Plotinus is called "Personal Beauty in the thought of Plotinus" which is available in the second chapter of "Neoplatonism and Western Aesthetics" (SUNY 2001).

Plotinus is the most genuine philosopher. He was looking for something that would not let him down.
