ON VIRTUE – True liberty is about ascending our corrupted state

The Enneads of Plotinus – Commentary on Ennead I – Tractate 2 – On Virtue

‘Being so caught up in the Particular, we are prevented from recognising that which is Universal.  To understand the problem in modern terms: we each possess multiple identities, but disproportionately give precedence to certain identities at the expense of others.  This inevitably leads to ideological divisions of religion, nationality, race, sex, economic status, etc.—not only dividing one consciousness from another, but likewise fracture the individual consciousness, creating an inner disequilibrium.’ – Becoming Vision: Reflections on the Enneads of Plotinus

The complete written commentary On Virtue will be available on Dec 13th, 2015.

    You wrote: “ON VIRTUE–True liberty is about ascending our corrupted state.” Surely, you mean that true liberty is about TRANSCENDING our corrupted state.
