The Six Enneads.
Author(s):
PlotinusMacKenna, Stephen (Translator)Page, B. S. (Translator)
Publisher:
Christian Classics Ethereal Library, Grand Rapids, MI
Description:
Plotinus is often accredited as the founder of Neo-Platonism.In an attempt to revive Platonic thought, this third centuryphilosopher and mystic wrote about issues such as virtue,happiness, reason, body, and soul, with Plato's philosophyas his guide. Like Plato, Plotinus had much disdain for ma-terial things and instead embraced the idea of a higher realmof immaterial intelligibility. Plotinus located the source ofcreation in a supreme "One." Plotinus believed this "One"transcended being, nonbeing, multiplicity, and division.
The Enneads 
were compiled by Plotinus' student, Porphyry, whogathered together his teacher's essays and arranged andedited them himself.These writings had a significant impacton the religious metaphysicians and mystics from the ancientworld. Plotinus has also influenced many thinkers of Islam,Indian Monism, and the Eastern Orthodox Church.Emmalon DavisCCEL Staff Writer
