  1. Bergson lettore del misticismo plotiniano. Note autografe inedite.Daniela Patrizia Taormina - 2015 - Elenchos 36 (2):341-360.
    Bergson interprets Plotinian mysticism in the light of his distinction between two different kinds of mysticism: one which translates union with God into action, the other which translates it into contemplation. Plotinus embodies the highest expression of the latter, intellectual mysticism. This thesis runs through Bergson’s oeuvre from his early works to Les Deux Sources de la morale et de la religion. The present study traces its origins back to a reading of Ennead VI 9 on the basis of notes (...)

    Plotinus and Epicurus: Matter, Perception, Pleasure.Angela Longo & Daniela Patrizia Taormina (eds.) - 2016 - Cambridge University Press.
    This volume investigates the reasons why Plotinus, a philosopher inspired by Plato, made critical use of Epicurean philosophy. Eminent scholars show that some fundamental Epicurean conceptions pertaining to ethics, physics, epistemology and theology are drawn upon in the Enneads to discuss crucial notions such as pleasure and happiness, providence and fate, matter and the role of sense perception, intuition and intellectual evidence in relation to the process of knowledge acquisition. By focusing on the meaning of these terms in Epicureanism, Plotinus (...)

  3. Due Passi Sull’Origine Della Materia in Giamblico. Note a Margine.Daniela Patrizia Taormina - 2014 - Elenchos 35 (2):349-364.
    Iamblichus took a clear stand in the late-antique debate on the origin of matter: in his view, matter is generated, in the sense that it is brought about by a higher principle outside physical time. Two passages testify to this conception: In Tim. fr. 38 Dillon and Ad Porph. p. 196.14-19 Saffrey-Segonds. The relation between the two, however, is rather problematic and scholars stand divided: some maintain that Proclus drew the conception expounded in In Tim. fr. 38 from Iamblichus’ commentary (...)

    Il N’y a Pas D’Homme, l'Che Ou Brave, Qui Ait Échappé a Sa Moira . Porphyre Vs. Les Stoiciens Sur L’Autonomie Individuelle Et L’Origine du Mal. [REVIEW]Daniela Patrizia Taormina - 2013 - Chôra 11:23-35.
    In an excerpt preserved by John Stobaeus in the chapter of the Anthologion entitled Peri tôn eph’hêmin, Porphyry addresses the issue of the origin of evil within the context of a broader investigation of individual autonomy : is it enough to envisage man as a subject with the freedom to act in order to make him responsible for evil and thus to free God of any responsibility with regard to the ills besetting individuals? An answer to this question is provided (...)

    "Todos Los seres son seres en virtud Del Uno". Unidad Y multiplicidad en el principio jambliqueo de causalidad universal.Daniela Patrizia Taormina - 2009 - Signos Filosóficos 11 (22):59-74.
    El problema de la causalidad universal está planteado y resuelto por los filósofos neoplatónicos de la Antigüedad Tardía a partir del principio de acuerdo con el cual todo ente extrae el propio origen a partir de un principio superior y trascendente: el Uno. Sin embargo, sobre esta línea unitaria, t..
