(PUBPenguin)The last great philosopher of classical antiquity, Plotinus defined God as the Beloved whose emanation we are and whose center we forever seek. His odd blend of Plato and mysticism profoundly affected Augustine and Pseudo-Dionysius, hence all medieval Christianity. 558 pages, softcover.
Here is a highly original synthesis of Platonism, mystic passion, ideas from Greek philosophy, and variants of the Trinity and other central tenets of Christian doctrine by the brilliant thinker who has had an immense influence on mystics and religious writers.
