The objective of this contribution is to reconstruct from the analysis of some chap- ters of enn.

For the description of the supra-intellectual vision, some chapters of treatises VI 9 [9] and VI 7 [38] will be examined, those in which the union (ἕνωσις) of the Soul with the One is described, which takes place through a real process of internalization that Plotinus in enn. VI 9 [9], 11 defines as ἔκστασις. The Soul, by virtue of the original bond that ties it to the intelligible world, can retrace the journey of ascent to reunite with the Principle that generat- ed it.

Abstract

The objective of this contribution is to reconstruct from the analysis of some chap- ters of enn. IV 6 [41] the act of bodily vision and the passing from vision in the physical sense to the supra-intellectual vision of the Soul, described by Plotinus in enn. VI 9 [9] and VI 7 [38]. For the description of the supra-intellectual vision, some chapters of treatises VI 9 [9] and VI 7 [38] will be examined, those in which the union (ἕνωσις) of the Soul with the One is described, which takes place through a real process of internalization that Plotinus in enn. VI 9 [9], 11 defines as ἔκστασις. The Soul, by virtue of the original bond that ties it to the intelligible world, can retrace the journey of ascent to reunite with the Principle that generat- ed it.
