Guthrie – Platão e platonismo

Tag: Guthrie

  • Guthrie-Plotinus: God

    (f) (If the soul is anything but simple matter, she must be constituted by a substantial form.) Those who claim that the soul is a body are, by the very force of the truth, forced to recognize the existence, before and above them, of a form proper to the soul; for they acknowledge the existence…

  • Guthrie-Plotinus: divinity

    Let us now propound a question about experiences to these men who feel love for incorporeal beauties. What do you feel in presence of the noble occupations, the good morals, the habits of temperance, and in general of virtuous acts and sentiments, and of all that constitutes the beauty of souls? What do you feel…

  • Guthrie-Plotinus: sense-quality

    The whiteness that I see in you is not a quality, but an actualization of the potentiality of whitening. In the intelligible world all the things that we call qualities are actualizations. They are called qualities because they are properties, because they differentiate the beings from each other, because in respect to themselves they bear…

  • Guthrie-Plotinus: sense-line

    It is impossible for the soul to become similar to sense-objects (in order to grasp them), by remaining pure. How indeed could a point become similar to a line? The intelligible line itself could not become conformed to the sense-line, any more than intelligible fire to the sense-fire, or the intelligible man to the sense-man.…

  • Guthrie-Plotinus: sense-being

    We must further observe that it is not the same beauty that is seen in the parts and in the whole, in individuals and in the universe; that there are beauties great enough in sense-objects and in individuals, for instance, in the guardians, to lead us to admire their creator, and to prove to us…

  • Guthrie-Plotinus: Ennead II,2

    About the Movement of the Heavens. QUESTIONS ABOUT THE MOVEMENTS OF THE HEAVENS. 1. Why do the heavens move in a circle? Because they imitate Intelligence. But to what does this movement belong? To the Soul, or to the body? Does it occur because the Soul is within the celestial sphere, which tends to revolve…

  • Guthrie-Plotinus: Ennead III,9

    Fragments About the Soul, the Intelligence, and the Good. DIFFERENCE BETWEEN INTELLIGENCE AND THE EXISTING ANIMAL. 1. Plato says, “The intelligence sees the ideas comprised within the existing animal.” He adds, “The demiurge conceived that this produced animal was to comprise beings similar and equally numerous to those that the intelligence sees in the existing…

  • Guthrie-Plotinus: Ennead V,7

    Do Ideas of Individuals Exist? TWO POSSIBLE HYPOTHESES OF IDEAS OF INDIVIDUALS. 1. Do ideas of individuals (as well as of classes of individuals), exist? This means that if I, in company with some other man, were to trace ourselves back to the intelligible world, we would there find separate individual principles corresponding to each…

  • Guthrie-Plotinus: action

    (g.) (The body exerts an uniform action, while the soul exerts a very diverse action.) The following considerations further demonstrate the impossibility of the soul being a body. A body must be hot or cold, hard or soft, liquid or solid, black or white, or qualities differing according to its nature. If it is only…

  • Guthrie-Plotinus: aei

    As the existence of begotten things consists in perpetually acquiring (something or another), they will be annihilated by a removal of their future. An attribution of the future to the (intelligible) entities of a nature contrary (to begotten things), would degrade them from the rank of existences. Evidently they will not be consubstantial with existence,…
