Section 001 The Enneads of Plotinus.

Instructor(s): Sara L Rappe (rappe@umich.edu)

Prerequisites: GREEK 302. (3). May not be repeated for credit.

Credits: (3).

Course Homepage: No homepage submitted.

In this course we read selections from the Enneads, the founding text of the Neoplatonic tradition, edited by Porphyry ca. 300 CE. Neoplatonism, a philosophical school that flourished ca. 270-530 CE, attempts to develop an esoteric reading of Plato's dialogues as the foundation for its own religious and contemplative practices. The tradition has had a profound influence on subsequent philosophical and religious movements, including orthodox Christianity, Islamic philosophy, Medieval Jewish philosophy, and Renaissance humanism. Plotinus' philosophy is utterly original, but draws its vocabulary and many of its analytic techniques from the centuries of philosophy that preceded him, including Aristotelian, Stoic, and Middle Platonic.
