Mística y Exégesis en la filosofía de Plotino

Nova Tellus 30 (2):73-98 (2012)

Two of the constitutive elements of Plotinus’ philosophy are mysticism and the exegesis of the philosophers that preceded him. These two aspects, however, are interpreted in different ways by scholars. Due to these facts, in the present paper we try to show and explain Plotinus’ exegesis of some Middle Platonic ideas. Furthermore, we evaluate the impact that these ideas together, with his mystical experiences, had on his metaphysical doctrine. We offer, in the last place, an interpretation of the relationship that mysticism and exegesis have in the Enneads, reconsidering the way in which scholars understand it.
