    Dianoia in Ioane Petritsi’s Commentary on Proclus’ Elements of Theology.Lela Alexidze - 2016 - Chôra 14:177-194.
    The aim of this paper is to analyze the concept of dianoia as soul’s activity, and related issues, in the twelfth century work by Ioane Petritsi : his Georgian translation of Proclus’ Elements of Theology and his Commentary on this text, including his prologue to it. The themes related to the discursive mode of cognition are also discussed in the 129th proposition of the Georgian version of the Elements and in Petritsi’s commentary on it. While analyzing the issues related to (...)

    Il Parmenide e Filone di Alessandria.Francesca Calabi - 2016 - Chôra 14:251-267.
    Cet article s’interroge sur la possibilité de dénicher des relations entre le Parménide platonicien et l’oeuvre de Philon d’Alexandrie. Le dialogue platonicien n’est jamais explicitement nommé ni cité par Philon. Il y a une discussion entre chercheurs modernes sur la connaissance que l’Alexandrin peut en avoir eu. D’un côté, Runia pense que le Parménide n’était pas très connu au premier siècle, d’un autre côté, Whittaker considère que, à propos de la transcendance divine, Philon peut avoir fait référence à la première (...)

  6. Living a Double Life.David Ellis - 2016 - Chôra 14:89-103.
    This paper examines the degree to which language can express one’s own being and the being of other things. Using Plotinus’ IV 3[27], On Difficulties about the Soul I, it argues that discursive reason both hinders and assists this endeavor. Plotinus understands the soul as the source of discursivity. His account positions the human soul between Intellect and corporeality. Similarly, discursive reason operates between thought and perception, working with images from both. On the one hand, since discursivity remains immersed in (...)

  7. Logismos et dianoia chez Plotin.Francis Lacroix - 2016 - Chôra 14:105-125.
    The use of the terms λογισμός and διάνοια in the writings of Plotinus has already been discussed by H. J. Blumenthal in his book entitled Plotinus’ Psychology. Blumenthal here defended the thesis that the terms were used as synonyms in the Enneads. Indeed, though some passages seem to indicate a difference between λογισμός and διάνοια, in the majority of cases Plotinus nonetheless seems to use these words interchangeably. We propose to analyze in detail the terms λογισμός and διάνοια by referring, (...)

    La διάνοια chez Proclus.Alain Lernould - 2016 - Chôra 14:139-154.
    According to the well known Platonic distinction of different types of knowing, discursive thought is second to intellect, and above opinion. Intellection intelligizes the entire intelligible cosmos, all at once, in an undivided manner. Discursive thought, involving temporal thinking, articulates into plurality the indivisible character of the intellectual life. I argue in this paper that Proclus does not reduce discursive thought to discursivity. Discursive thought is thought, i.e. intellection before being discursive, intellection of Psychic Forms, and intellection in the manner (...)

  9. Comment l’'me peut saisir l’un.Carolle Metry-Tresson - 2016 - Chôra 14:195-221.
    For Damascius, the last great Neoplatonist of late Antiquity, the answer to the question “how to go beyond the plurality of human thought for the purpose of really attaining the one?” is not to be found on the side of the via negativa – which is the dynamics of a rejection of plurality –, but in a positive, unifying and integrative dialectic by which the plurality of the soul is not denied any more, but gathered, contracted and simplified in an (...)

  10. Souls and Cities in Late Ancient Platonic Philosophy.Dominic O’Meara - 2016 - Chôra 14:15-28.
    L’analogie établie dans la République de Platon entre l’âme et la cité a fait l’objet d’intéressantes interprétations chez les philosophes platoniciens de l’Antiquité tardive. Cette étude présente d’abord la manière dont Plotin et ses successeurs ont conçu l’âme, prise en elle‑meme, comme membre d’une communauté intelligible unie dans la connaissance et dans une amitié transcendante. De sa patrie intelligible l’âme descend au monde corporel, pouvant perdre, dans cette descente, son rapport à sa communauté d’origine, s’aliénant en raison de sa soumission (...)

  11. Plotinus on Starting Points of Reasoning.Pauliina Remes - 2016 - Chôra 14:29-57.
    Plotinus treats certain pre‑philosophical concepts as reliable or promising starting‑points for philosophical study. This article studies the way in which he, in the act of philosophizing, conceives of the passage from an unclear understanding, a kind of pre‑concept, to a better, philosophical conception. What are the sources of this passage? What is the role of data given by sense‑perception? In what way are innate conceptual and cognitive capacities involved? It will be argued that the methodology suggested is a Platonic version (...)

    Folie, écriture et usages des mythes dans l’Hyppolite d’Euripide.Davide Susanetti - 2016 - Chôra 14:269-282.
    The aim of this essay is to focus the different strategies the dramaturgy of Hippolitus adopts in order to problematize the use of mythical paradigms, poetic tradition and writing when tragic characters are to deal with the force of desire. Ancient myths, handed down by poets, are quoted and exploited by the nurse in a sophistic perspective that tries to justify natural instincts by cultural tradition. This perspective is opposite to the corpus of orphic writings and the paradigm of purity (...)

    Langage Discursif Et Non‑Discursif Chez Plotin.Andrei Timotin - 2016 - Chôra 14:127-137.
    In Enn. IV, 3 [27], 18, Plotinus examines two related topics associated with the issue of the soul’s entry into the body, and with the theory of the undescended soul : the use of discursive reasoning, and of discursive language in the intelligible world. In this context, Plotinus explains that both the λογισμός, and the discursive language are inappropriate to the intelligible world ; they characterize the part of the soul that does not remain in the intelligible, and is oriented (...)

    Contemplation et théurgie.David Vachon - 2016 - Chôra 14:155-175.
    In this article, we want to analyse the principal characteristics of three faculties of the soul in Proclus’ work : discursive thinking, contemplation and theurgic practice. We will then establish links between these faculties and the process of purification, divided into philosophical, dialectic and telestic types. We will then analyse these types of purification in relation with three metaphors exploited by Proclus : the naked soul, the flower of the intellect, and silence. The goal of this article consists in proving (...)

    Penser l’Un ou la limite de la médiation selon Plotin.Anca Vasiliu - 2016 - Chôra 14:59-87.
    Trying to reconstruct the specific definition of the noetic act from some excerpts of the fifth and seventh Treatises, one manages to circumscribe the operations by which Plotinus establishes in the context the unity between the intellect, the act of thinking, some form of «prime intelligibility» and the other, multiple, intelligibilities. Plotinus is striving to avoid several pitfalls in order not to endanger the unity of the noetic hypostasis and consequently to imperil the only possible way of thinking the One. (...)

    Defying Words.Marilena Vlad - 2016 - Chôra 14:223-247.
    Dans cet article, nous nous concentrons sur le problème du principe premier chez Damascius. La question est celle de savoir dans quelle mesure la discursivité – le fait d’en parler – affecte ce problème et l’accès de notre pensée. Bien que le principe premier se veut indicible, toute tentative de le suggérer ne nous rend qu’une image discursive et donc inadéquate de lui. Toute tentative de raffiner notre perspective sur le principe ne fait que nous en éloigner d’avantage. Quelle est (...)
