Theophany : the neoplatonic philosophy of Dionysius the Areopagite by Eric D Perl( )

12 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,449 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The work of Pseudo-Dionysius the Areopagite stands at a cusp in the history of thought: it is at once Hellenic and Christian, classical and medieval, philosophical thought and theological. Unlike the predominantly theological or text-historical studies which constitute much of the scholarly literature on Dionysius within the tradition of ancient Greek philosophy in nature, placing Dionysius within the tradition of ancient Greek philosophy and emphasizing, in a positive light, his continuity with the non-Christian Neoplatonism of Plotinus and Proclus. Eric D. Perl offers clear expositions of the reasoning that underlies Neoplatonic doctrines. He includes extensive accounts of fundamental ideas in Plotinus and Proclus, as well as Dionysius himself, and provides an excellent philosophical defense of Neoplatonism in general." --Publisher
Thinking being : introduction to metaphysics in the classical tradition by Eric D Perl( )

15 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 682 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Thinking Being, Eric Perl articulates central ideas and arguments regarding the nature of reality in Parmenides, Plato, Aristotle, Plotinus, and Aquinas. He shows that, throughout this tradition, these ideas proceed from and return to the indissoluble togetherness of thought and being, first clearly expressed by Parmenides. The emphasis throughout is on continuity rather than opposition: Aristotle appears as a follower of Plato in identifying being as intelligible form, and Aquinas as a follower of Plotinus in locating the first principle 'beyond being.' Hence Neoplatonism, itself a coherent development of Platonic thought, comes to be seen as the mainstream of classical philosophy. Perl's book thus contributes to a revisionist understanding of the fundamental outlines of the western tradition in metaphysics."--Publisher description
Ennead V.1 : on the three primary levels of reality by Plotinus( )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Plotinus' Treatise V.1 comes closer than any other to providing an outline of his entire spiritual and metaphysical system, and as such it may serve to some degree as an introduction to his philosophy. It addresses in condensed form a great many topics to which Plotinus elsewhere devotes extended discussion, including the problem of the multiple self; etermity and time; the unity-in-duality of intellect and the intelligible; and the derivation of intelligible being from the One."
