The enneads by Plotinus( Book )

476 editions published between 1490 and 2012 in 11 languages and held by 3,256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Enneads bring together Platonism, mystic passion and ideas from Greek philosophy, together with striking variants of the Trinity and other central Christian doctrines, to produce a highly original synthesis. Yet despite the profundity of his thought, and his immense influence on mystics and religious writers, Plotinus (AD 204-70) remained largely inaccessible. What was desperately needed, suggest John Dillon in his Biographical Sketch, was 'an interpretative translation, which would boldly tease out all the nuances of Plotinus' crabbed and condensed language, and reproduce it in English of proper nobility'. Such is precisely the achievement of Stephen MacKenna; his book ranks with the greatest translations of the twentieth century

"The Six Enneads ... is the collection of writings of Plotinus, edited and compiled by his student Porphyry (c. 270 AD). Plotinus was a student of Ammonius Saccas and they were founders of Neoplatonism. His work, through Augustine of Hippo, the Cappadocian Fathers, Pseudo-Dionysius the Areopagite and several subsequent Christian and Muslim thinkers, has greatly influenced Western and Near-Eastern thought." -- Wikipedia

Über Ewigkeit und Zeit by Plotinus( Book )

35 editions published between 1967 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Plotins Abhandlung über die Zeit ist die wichtigste Schrift über die Zeit, die wir nach Platon und Aristoteles und vor Augustins Abhandlung in den Confessiones XI besitzen. Die im Titel der Enneade III 7 genannten Begriffe "Ewigkeit" und "Zeit" sind im Sinne Plotins trotz ihrer ontologischen Gegensätzlichkeit als eine dialektische Einheit zu begreifen: das Gegründete und im Werden sich Zeigende, die Zeit, ist nur von seinem unwandelbar seienden Grund, der Ewigkeit her seiend und verstehbar. Durch diese notwendige ontologische Reduktion der Zeit auf die Ewigkeit unterscheidet sich Plotins Philosophie der Zeit einerseits wesentlich von der Zeitauffassung in der Philosophie der Neuzeit, andererseits von dem weltimmanent gedachten Zeitbegriff bei Aristoteles. Plotin greift vielmehr auf den im Timaios erstmals in der Geschichte der Philosophie metaphysisch begründeten Zeitbegriff zurück, indem er den ursprünglichen Ansatz der Platonischen Ontologie entfaltet und in sein System der Hypostasen verwandelnd überführt."

10 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and Italian and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ennead VI.4-5, originally written as a single treatise, contains Plotinus{u2019} most general and sustained exposition of the relationship between the intelligible and the sensible realms, addressing and coalescing two central issues in Platonism: the nature of the soul-body relationship and the nature of participation. Its main question is, How can soul animate bodies without sharing their extension? The treatise seems to have had considerable impact: it is much reflected in Porphyry{u2019}s important work, Sententiae, and the doctrine of reception according to the capacity of the recipient, for which this treatise is the main source, resonated in medieval thinkers
