      Dear ISNS members,

      Below is the description for the panel “The Apprehension of the
      Principles in Neoplatonism,” chaired by Jean-Marc Narbonne. Please remember
      to send abstracts for papers directly to the chair of the panel in which you
      wish to participate.

      11. Jean-Marc Narbonne (Jean-Marc.Narbonne@...): The apprehension
      of principles in Neoplatonism

      In all the Platonic tradition, the question of the possible relation of our
      Soul to the principles has always raised difficulties. How can one get in
      touch with the principles, be it epistemological, ethical or metaphysical?
      How is the ascent to be realized? What are the preconditions, here in the
      sensible world (the famous 'escape') of this tentative ascension? Moreover,
      is this eventual ascension the result of a pure philosophical process or
      does it include ritual components of some sort?
