 The Relation Between Sensible and Intelligible Reality

Show Summary Details


The relation of presence or participation between sensible and intelligible reality is discussed in terms of Plotinus’ explanation of how soul is present in body (as distinct from the presence of body in body) and present to itself, the presence of soul in body signifying body's dependence on soul. How soul acts on body is also discussed.
