  1. The Quest for the Good Life: Ancient Philosophers on Happiness.Øyvind Rabbås, Eyjólfur K. Emilsson, Hallvard Fossheim & Miira Tuominen (eds.) - 2015 - Oxford University Press UK.
    How should I live? How can I be happy? What is happiness, really? These are perennial questions, which in recent times have become the subject of diverse kinds of academic research. Ancient philosophers placed happiness at the centre of their thought, and we can trace the topic through nearly a millennium. While the centrality of the notion of happiness in ancient ethics is well known, this book is unique in that it focuses directly on this notion, as it appears in (...)

    Plotinus on Sense-Perception: A Philosophical Study.Eyjolfur Kjalar Emilsson - 1988 - Cambridge University Press.
    This book is a philosophical analysis of Plotinus' views on sense-perception. It aims to show how his thoughts were both original and a development of the ideas of his predecessors, in particular those of Plato, Aristotle and the Peripatetics. Special attention is paid to Plotinus' dualism with respect to soul and body and its implications for his views on the senses. The author combines a historical approach to his subject, setting Plotinus' thought in the context of thinkers who preceded and (...)

    Aristotle and Neoplatonism in Late Antiquity: Interpretations of the De Anima.Eyjolfur Kjalar Emilsson & H. J. Blumenthal - 1998 - Philosophical Review 107 (3):486.
    The late ancient commentators on Aristotle, most of them Platonists, have been gradually re-emerging on the philosophical and scholarly horizon during the last two or three decades. Their reappearance is not likely to cause any major transformations of the scene, but they are interesting enough in themselves to deserve careful study and they have been influential in the past to the extent that proper understanding of their work sheds light on the subsequent history of the interpretation of Aristotle. This and (...)

  7. Plotinus.Eyjólfur Kjalar Emilsson - 2005 - Routledge.
    Plotinus was the founder of Neoplatonism, whose thought has had a profound influence on medieval philosophy, and on Western philosophy more broadly. In this engaging book, Eyjólfur K. Emilsson introduces and explains the full spectrum of Plotinus’ philosophy for those coming to his work for the first time. Beginning with a chapter-length overview of Plotinus’ life and works which also assesses the Platonic, Aristotelian and Stoic traditions that influenced him, Emilsson goes on to address key topics including: Plotinus’ originality the (...)

    Kant and Plato.Camilla Serck-Hanssen & Eyjólfur K. Emilsson - 2004 - SATS 5 (1):71-82.
    It is commonly assumed that Kant is indebted to Aristotle not to Plato. In this paper we argue, however, that the following four central topics in Kantâ\texttrademarks philosophy must be recognized as having Platonic roots. 1. The idea that metaphysics is a system of synthetic apriori judgements and the idea that such judgments require pure intuition. 2. The idea that geometrical objects have a certain purposiveness. 3. The notion of dialectic. 4. The notion of ideas and their role in the (...)

  23. Plotinus on Sense-Perception [Microform] a Philosophical and Historical Study. --.Eyjolfur Kjalar Emilsson - 1984 - University Microfilms International.
    The thesis is a philosophical and historical study of Plotinus' views on sense-perception. Chapter I contains an exposition of Plotinus' metaphysics. Chapter II deals with Plotinus' views on man and the soul in general. In Chapter III Plotinus' views on visual transmission are discussed. It is argued that his doctrine of visual transmission, which Plotinus describes in terms of sympatheia, is to be regarded as a synthesis of Platonic, Aristotelian and Stoic elements. Like other ancient philosophers Plotinus holds that sense-perception (...)
