  1. Plotinus, Ennead II.5: On What Is Potentially and What Actually. Translation with an Introduction and Commentary.Cinzia Arruzza - 2015 - Las Vegas; Zurich; Athens: Parmenides Publishing.
    The significance of the notions of actuality and potentiality in Plotinus' thought can hardly be overstated. Throughout the Enneads, they are crucial to understanding the specific causality of intelligible realities and the relation of participation between intelligible and sensible realms. In Ennead II.5, Plotinus for the first time provides a systematic clarification of his peculiar use of these terms, through a sustained revision of Aristotle's own elaboration of the topic and of his terminology. The treatise discusses the different meanings of (...)

  • Colloquium 4 Proclus on Evil.Dmitri Nikulin - 2016 - Proceedings of the Boston Area Colloquium of Ancient Philosophy 31 (1):119-146.
    This paper considers the problem of evil as it has been discussed and formulated by Plotinus and polemically taken over by Proclus. Contrary to Plotinus, Proclus does not consider matter as evil. Rather, evil in its elusive indefinite nature has to be characterized by the redefined concepts of privation, subcontrary and parypostasis. In its inescapable deficiency, evil, then, is the privation and subcontrary of the good that exists parypostatically, that is, as elusively present in its absence as the misplacement of (...)

  • The Basic Logic of Plotinus' System: A Discussion of E. K. Emilsson, Plotinus. [REVIEW]Riccardo Chiaradonna - 2018 - Oxford Studies in Ancient Philosophy 55:227-250.
    This article is a discussion of E. K. Emilsson, Plotinus (London and New York, 2017). Three themes are selected: causation; the holistic account of intelligible being; the status of matter and body. The discussion ends with some remarks about Emilsson’s approach to Plotinus’ philosophy. Emilsson’s account of Plotinus’ causation is based on the transmission model, what Emilsson calls ‘the principle of prior possession’. Here it is argued that the transmission model requires qualifications in order to be applied to Plotinus’ account (...)
