      The moral life, the philosophic life and the

      ideal of god-likeness.


      Paper and workshop by Professor Suzanne Stern-Gillet

      University of Bolton and University of Manchester

      April 26-27, 2012

      Paper. Is the philosophic life, as Plotinus describes it in the Enneads,
      invariably compatible with

      the moral life, as we today conceive of it? If, as Plato says and Plotinus
      loves to repeat, �evils haunt

      this region�, should the �good man� flee from them and turn to the god
      within or should he, on the

      contrary, seek to alleviate the predicament of those who, for one reason or
      another, still remain in

      �this region�? Or should he, conceivably, strive to do both? All three
      answers have recently been

      ably and hotly defended. The aim of the lecture is to identify and to
      question the presuppositions and

      assumptions built into the formulation of both the initial question and the
      answers that it has mostly

      received to date. The question, so it will be argued, could not have arisen
      in such terms in the

      framework of Plotinus� metaphysics and the values that it entails. Time and
      place: April 26, 1.15-3.00
