The immortality of the soul according to Plotinus and his polemic to his philosophical opponents: Ennead IV 7[2]
Summary:
The present work is an attempt to approach the philosophy of Plotinus regarding the immortality of the soul in the context not so much that it focuses on those characteristics that make the soul eternal, indestructible and therefore immortal, as in the reason for which the Ennead IV 7 is written. In this sense, the present study concerns Plotinus’ polemic towards his opponents, opposing those of his predecessors who argue that the soul is an extension of the body and indeed directly dependent on it on the one hand and on the other, the compatibility of a theory "about the immortality of the soul" with the historical reality of the 3rd century AD, of which the philosopher is a part. Both the characteristics of the soul, as well as the proof of its immortality and thus of its ontological relationship with Hen and Nous are of key importance and at the same time the basis on which the whole project is based: the degradation of the material element and the ontological upgrade of soul as bringing life to the sensible world.
