Plotinus on Sense-Perception. A Philosophical Study.

New York: Cambridge University Press, 1988. First Edition. Hardcover. 8vo. x + 180pp. Original red cloth with silver titling to spine. Notes, bibliography and index. From the publishers: "This book is a philosophical analysis of Plotinus' views on sense-perception. It aims to show how his thoughts were both original and a development of the ideas of his predecessors, in particular those of Plato, Aristotle and the Peripatetics. Special attention is paid to Plotinus' dualism with respect to soul and body and its implications for his views on the senses. The author combines a historical approach to his subject, setting Plotinus' thought in the context of thinkers who preceded and succeeded him, with a proper analysis of his ideas and, where appropriate, of those from which they derived."
