Plotinus (c.AD201/5-270) was a philosopher of the ancient world who is one of the most influential philosophers in antiquity after Plato and Aristotle. In his philosophy there are three principles: the One, the Intellect, and the Soul.

Plotinus' final words were: "Try to raise the Divine in yourselves to the Divine in the all." Today, we present to you the excerpts from The Six Enneads.
