    The Presence of the Paradigm: Immanence and Transcendence In Plato’s Theory of Forms.Eric D. Perl - 1999 - Review of Metaphysics 53 (2):339 - 362.
    DISCUSSIONS OF THE ONTOLOGICAL STATUS of Plato’s forms too often take for granted that immanence and transcendence are opposed to each other: if the forms are in instances then they are not separate from them, while if the forms are separate then they are not in instances. This assumption is sometimes associated with the theory that there is a change in Plato’s thought between the early or Socratic dialogues, in which forms are regarded as immanent, and the middle dialogues and (...)

    The Motion of Intellect On the Neoplatonic Reading of Sophist 248e-249d.Eric D. Perl - 2014 - International Journal of the Platonic Tradition 8 (2):135-160.
    This paper defends Plotinus’ reading of Sophist 248e-249d as an expression of the togetherness or unity-in-duality of intellect and intelligible being. Throughout the dialogues Plato consistently presents knowledge as a togetherness of knower and known, expressing this through the myth of recollection and through metaphors of grasping, eating, and sexual union. He indicates that an intelligible paradigm is in the thought that apprehends it, and regularly regards the forms not as extrinsic “objects” but as the contents of living intelligence. A (...)

    “Every Life Is a Thought”: The Analogy of Personhood in Neoplatonism.Eric D. Perl - 2006 - Philosophy and Theology 18 (1):143-167.
    The distinction between persons and things reflects the opposition between reason and nature that is characteristic of modern thought: persons are constituted by rationality, self-consciousness, free will, and moral agency; things are taken to be merely natural or material beings, devoid of reason and the products of entirely mechanistic forces. Persons, as ends in themselves, alone deserve moral consideration; things (including all plants and animals) deserve no moral consideration. Accordingly in much modern thought, nature, including the human body, becomes a (...)

    Plotinus. [REVIEW]Eric D. Perl - 1996 - Review of Metaphysics 50 (2):399-399.
    This is an unusual book in that it is neither a synthetic presentation of Plotinus' thought nor an examination of a particular topic in Plotinus. It is rather, as the series title indicates, a study of Plotinus's arguments on a wide range of issues. For this reason, it would make exceptionally difficult reading for anyone who is not already familiar with Plotinus's philosophy.

    Plotinus or The Simplicity of Vision.Eric D. Perl - 1995 - Review of Metaphysics 49 (1):138-139.
    This is a translation of the third edition of Hadot's Plotin ou la simplicité du regard. As the translator explains, Hadot "did not wish his Plotinus to be a work of scholarship". It is rather "a spiritual biography of Plotinus--not an analysis of all the details of Plotinus' system--and it is as a spiritual biography that it should be read". Chapters 1-5 present Plotinus' spiritual teachings, and chapters 6-7 discuss his biography in their light. The work is not primarily philosophical (...)

  20. The Augustinian Tradition. [REVIEW]Eric D. Perl - 2000 - Review of Metaphysics 54 (1):162-162.
    St. Augustine’s tremendous influence on Western thought continues to provide scholars from all fields with fresh insights and new connections to the philosophical and theological questions posed by modernity. The twenty essays collected here attempt not only to discuss perennial problems as found in Augustine—human willing, the nature of time, sin and free will, the soul’s relationship to the body—but also bring Augustine’s mind to bear on many post-Patristic concerns such as the alliance between theology and philosophy, linguistic analysis, the (...)

    The Good of the Intellect.Eric D. Perl - 2009 - Proceedings of the American Catholic Philosophical Association 83:25-39.
    Recent continental philosophy often seeks to retrieve Neoplatonic transcendence, or the Good, while ignoring the place of intellect in classical and medieval Neoplatonism. Instead, it attempts to articulate an encounter with radical transcendence in the immediacy of temporality, individuality, and affectivity.On the assumption that there is no intellectual intuition (Kant), intellectual consciousness is reduced to ratiocination and is taken to be “poor in intuition” (Marion). In this context, the present paper expounds Plotinus’ phenomenology of intellectual experience to show how intellect, (...)
