Enneads

Book cover
By: (204-270)

Enneads by Plotinus is a profound philosophical work that delves into the nature of existence, reality, and the soul. Plotinus takes readers on a journey through his teachings on the concept of the One, the source of all existence, and the process of emanation through which all things come into being.

Through a series of six essays, Plotinus explores the nature of the soul, the relationship between the individual and the divine, and the importance of virtue in achieving spiritual enlightenment. His ideas on the nature of reality and the ultimate goal of the soul are both thought-provoking and deeply insightful.

Plotinus's writing style is dense and highly philosophical, which may be challenging for some readers. However, those who are willing to invest the time and effort will be rewarded with a deeper understanding of the complexities of human existence and the true nature of reality.

Overall, Enneads is a thought-provoking and illuminating work that will appeal to readers interested in metaphysics, philosophy, and spiritual inquiry. Plotinus's ideas are timeless and continue to be relevant in our modern world, making this book a valuable resource for those seeking wisdom and enlightenment.

Book Description:
The six Enneads are the collected writings of the Neoplatonic philosopher Plotinus arranged by his student Porphyry into fifty-four books with each Ennead containing nine. The translator Kenneth Sylvan Guthrie arranged these books chronologically rather than according to Porphyry's numeration. This recording is organized according to Porphyry's numeration with Roman numerals indicating the Ennead and Hindu-Arabic numerals indicating the book e.g. VI.9 would be the ninth book of the sixth Ennead. A hyperlinked table of contents at Volume 1 Page 3 of the gutenberg.org text will enable you to jump to the specific Ennead if you wish to read along with the recording.
