Review of D. M. Hutchinson, Plotinus on Consciousness

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

Abstract / Description of output

The view that ancient philosophers made no use of the notion of consciousness, and perhaps even the view that consciousness does not enter philosophical discourse before Descartes, may still have its adherents. However, anyone who reads the Enneads can hardly overlook the fact that consciousness plays an important role in Plotinus. D. M. Hutchinson's study is thus most welcome as it is hoped that its discussion will motivate scholars of ancient philosophy and beyond to study Plotinus' contribution to the history of the philosophy of this remarkable phenomenon, consciousness.
