At the heart of Plotinus’ teaching resides the three principles, archai or hypostases. The One, Intellect and the Soul.
“There is the One beyond being… and next in order there is being and intellect, and the nature of soul is third. And just as in nature there are these three… so we should think that these are also present in us” Plotinus; Enneads (V,1,10,1-6)
This video explores how these three principles interact with one another and bring about the sensible world.
