I didn’t rehabilitate anyone, but they somehow rehabilitated me. My school-friend was reading Plotinus for an MLitt with Gerard O’Daly at Lancaster University, and so through him I came to read Ennead VI 9; something real stirred in me, but I was still not over-impressed; and then one night over beer, my friend and my brother, who was present at the time, persuaded me to do Classics and Philosophy at Lancaster.Having
