The text discusses Neoplatonism, a Greek philosophical movement that emerged in the second century and lasted until 529. Neoplatonism views the world as governed by meaning, requiring elevated thinking to comprehend it. It focuses on finding a unique principle, the One, which explains the nature of the intelligible. Plotinus, influenced by Plato, introduces innovations and fundamental changes compared to other philosophers like Aristotle and the Stoics.
Neoplatonism transcends syncretism, integrating influences into a unique vision characterized by mysticism and ecstasy. The significant differences between Neoplatonism and Christian or Gnostic thought are highlighted, emphasizing Plotinus’ innovative perspective on the intelligible and sensible worlds.
