Platonism and Neoplatonism Unit

Statement of Purpose: 

This Unit is committed to the ongoing study of Platonic traditions in connection with the history and philosophy of religions, from antiquity to the present. We are supported in this effort by the International Society for Neoplatonic Studies. Several of our panelists have published their papers in the Society’s Journal of Neoplatonic Studies as well as in other refereed journals in classics, religious studies, theology, and philosophy.

Call for Papers: 

We welcome any papers on the theme of Eros and Ascent in the Pagan, Jewish, Christian, Islamic traditions. This coming year we would like to explore the so-called Theology of Aristotle, that is, Plotinus, Enneads IV-VI translated into Arabic in the Al-Kindi circle. We are also interested in the Commentary tradition.

Finally, we also invite work on heavenly ascents in Apocalyptic literature, and, generally, Jewish Apocalyptic and Mystical Literature, the Biblical Tradition, New Testament.
