Abstract

Through new references, both conceptual and lexical, to the "Timaeus", concerning in particular the problematic connection between human soul and body, this paper aims to show how pervasive a role Plato’s ideas play in the aporiai Plotinus raises about the soul’s impassibility when facing perceptions and affections. But if the "Timaeus" looms large not only in the second part of Ennead III 6 on matter where the influence of this dialogue is undisputed, but already in the first five chapters, the treatise as a whole would turn out to be much more coherent than previously assumed.

Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
