Select Works of Plotinus
Brasch B693 A4 E5 1914
Neoplatonism is a philosophical tradition which can be traced back to the third-century philosopher Plotinus. Chiefly influenced by Plato, Plotinus taught the concept of ‘the One’ beyond being and non-being. He identifies his transcendent One as the source of life and with Good and Beauty. Plotinus’ writings inspired medieval mystics and theologians, Renaissance philosophers, and modernist poets. His translator G. R. S. Mead called for a return to Plotinean values and asked that his readers find in Plotinus ‘a guide’ to ‘lead us by a safe path to … supernal realms.’
