608Re: Plotinus, "On Beauty" (1.6 )
- Apr 11, 2005Thanks to everybody who responded to my question. I am getting back
with such a delay only because I have not been aware of these
(my e-mail notification was not working).
Also, I apologize for confusion with my name, which is, actually,
Arkadi Choufrine (I had to use my wife's account first because I
not pass Yahoo's symbol recognition test :<()
I will certainly look into the studies to which you referred me
is not a problem :>).
At this point I would just clarify my question a bit.
I understand that "theoremata" are not Forms. What I do not
(1) How Plotinus could possibly consider some kind of "theoremata"
be "not dominated by shape" (which is his definition of ugliness).
does it mean for a "theorema" to be "dominated by shape"?
(2) What about the second part of my question (concerning the soul)?
particular, how should we take Plotinus' statement that ugliness
to the soul through its "receiving a FORM (eidos) other than its own"?
