Freedom and Responsibility in Neoplatonist Thought

Oxford University Press (2020)

Ursula Coope
Oxford University
Ursula Coope presents a ground-breaking study of the philosophy of the Neoplatonists. She explores their understanding of freedom and responsibility: an entity is free to the extent that it is wholly in control of itself, self-determining, self-constituting, and self-knowing - which only a non-bodily thing can be.
