Abstract

La puissance de l’intelligible: la theorie plotinienne des Formes au miroir de l’heritage medioplatonicien. Ancient and medieval philosophy. Series 1, 51 . Leuven: Leuven University Press, 2014. Pp. vii, 264. isbn 9789462700024. €82.50. Plotinus’ reestablishment of the Forms within Intellect as causal agents is the stated main concern of Alexandra Michalewski in this book, which originated as a 2008 doctoral thesis written under the supervision of Luc Brisson. She has organized her study however not as a true monograph concentrated on presenting from the outset how Plotinus altered the function of the Forms and contrasting his conception, point by point, with that of earlier Platonists. Rather her approach to explicating his theory of the Forms via the “miroir” of her title is rather to offer a detailed survey of their philosophical treatment across the period of Middle Platonism, which accounts for almost half her text, and then to devote an equal space to Plotinus himself, followed by a brief conclusion summarizing the main differences between Plotinus and the Middle Platonists. At the outset, in her Introduction, Michalewski sets the problem that she intends mainly to address, of how Plotinus defines the Forms as not only interior to Intellect
