Actuality and potentiality in Plotinus’ view of the intelligible universe

Authors: Dufour, Richard
Abstract: The scope of this paper is first to explain the meaning of potential existence, actual existence, power and actuality according to Plotinus; and then investigate how, in the Enneads, these notions apply to the One, Intellect and Soul. We will see that Plotinus makes a coherent and consistent use of these notions throughout the corpus.
