This collection of essays explores the scope of the important relationships between the philosophical system of Neoplatonism and the arts in Italy. It was a pervasive way of thinking from A. D. to A. D., and while antithetical to Christianity in the beginning, its ideas were quickly adopted by Christian theology, and Neoplatonism became a philosophical tool of the Catholic Church.

    This book is a philosophical study of two major thinkers who span the period of late antiquity. While Plotinus stands at the beginning of its philosophical tradition, setting the themes for debate and establishing strategies of argument and interpretation, Proclus.   An overview of Neoplatonism and all its aspect pretty much just that. Does the work well. It's important to note that Neoplatonism is not monolithic: it has strands championed by different philosophers through the ages. About this the book emphasizes: but perhaps due to lack of space, I find the divisions not clearly extricated/5(5).

    Neoplatonism is a strand of Platonic philosophy that emerged in the second century AD against the background of Hellenistic philosophy and religion. The term does not encapsulate a set of ideas as much as it encapsulates a chain of thinkers which began with Ammonius Saccas and his student Plotinus (c. /5 – AD) and which stretches to the 5th century AD. Neoplatonism definition is - Platonism modified in later antiquity to accord with Aristotelian, post-Aristotelian, and eastern conceptions that conceives of the world as an emanation from an ultimate indivisible being with whom the soul is capable of being reunited in trance or ecstasy.
