Plotinus on the Soul is a study of Plotinus' psychology, which is
arguably the most sophisticated Platonist theory of the soul in
antiquity. Plotinus offers a Platonist response to Aristotelian and
Stoic conceptions of the soul that is at the same time an
innovative interpretation of Plato's Timaeus. He considers the
notion of the soul to be crucial for explaining the rational order
of the world. To this end, he discusses not only different types of
individual soul (such as the souls of the stars, and human and
animal souls) but also an entity that he was the first to introduce
into philosophy: the so-called hypostasis Soul. This is the first
study to provide a detailed explanation of this entity, but it also
discusses the other types of soul, with an emphasis on the human
soul, and explains Plotinus' original views on rational thought and
its relation to experience.
