   schema:reviewBody ""The author offers a study on the scientific knowledge of sensible reality in the Enneads. In so doing, she presents a radical new perspective on the philosophy of Plotinus and engages in an intense, detailed, and critical re-reading of Plotinus and his commentators. This effect is witnessed in her choice of texts, from the early and very famous treatise "The Three Initial Hypostases" (V, 1[10]) to her very singular use and analysis of the late treatise "On Love" (III, 5[50]). Of interest to scholars in Plotinian studies, this book has yet a larger audience as the author investigates the full range of Plotinian epistemology from the originative production of the One, that is the Intellect, to the last declension of true being that is Nature, the lower part of world Soul. The style is fluid and appeals to scholars of ancient philosophy as well as more contemporary discussions in the field of metaphysics and epistemology."--BOOK JACKET." ;
