o.J.., [PU: Kessinger Publ. Comp.], 131 S. Broschiert. Sehr gutes Ex. - Reprint der Ausgabe 1908 (?). - Of ancient meta-physic, for the reason already stated of modern, because, though, in the Science of Being, vast progress has doubtless been made since the days when Plotinus lived and taught at Rome and Alexandria, yet, upon the whole, it has been a progress which, leaving unmarred the grand outlines of the primitive scheme, has perforce contented itself with broadening and strengthening its logical foundations and enriching its bare and abstract austerity with all the fulness of concrete experience. To Plotinus thinkers so great, yet so diverse, as Hegel, Coleridge and Emerson have been proud to acknowledge their debt. Had it remained unacknowledged it might easily have been inferred by the student of their respective works. The modern theory of the Absolute, as represented in the masterly speculations of our own Dr. Bradley, amounts in fact to a rein--statement of the Plotinian theory of the Noumenal Universe. With a difference, no doubt for, at first sight, the sensuous factors of experience, which Bradley includes, would in the Neoplatonist system appear to be excluded from the definition of Reality. But they are not really so excluded, only conceived-as divested of the element of illusion which characterises them on the phenomenal plane. For Plctinus expressly states that, in the sphere oftrue existence ' thought " may equally be described as " clear sensation," just as, on the phenomenal plane, " sensation" is definable as " obscure thought." Symptoms have of late not been wanting of a revival of interest in the works of Plotinus and his Neoplatonist disciples, but with the exception of Dr. Bigg's volume on the subject, a work written from a theological rather than a free philosophical standpoint, I am not aware of the existence of any methodical exposition of the system. But if there be any truth in the assertion of Plotinus, that the contemplative faculty of individuals and of the race rises by a natural progression from the sensuous to the psychical, from the psychical to the spiritual plane, the appearance of this little work may prove not inopportune.

A Metaphysical Study. "Casually introduced to the notice of the writer (Whitby), at an age when his mind must have been peculiarly susceptible to their significance, the Enneads of Plotinus took such a grip upon his imagination that for many months they seemed to have translated him bodily to the shining sphere of supersensual experience." Contents: Life of Plotinus; Ancient and Modern Methods; Neoplationism; Matter; The Universe; Individuality; The Problem of Evil; Providence and the Individual; Demons and the Demonic Faculty; Concerning Love and the Emotions; Substance or Corporeal Essence; Time and Eternity; Doctrine of the Soul; Individuality; Incarnation or Descension; The World-Soul as Basis of Movement; Intelligence, and the Intelligible World; Primal Categories or Elements of the Notion; Universal Number; Number and Unity; Time and Space in Eternity; Ideal Functions of Time and Space; Universal Differentiation; Intelligence and the One; The Cause of Beauty; The One; Potential Import of the Doctrine of Unity.
