Riedweg, Christoph; Gritti, Elena (2010). Echi dal Timeo nelle aporie sull’impassibilità dell’anima in Enneadi III 6, 1-5. Frutti di una synousia plotiniana. Elenchos, 31(1):123-150.

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.
