Abstract

A Study of an Intellectual Pilgrimage BY THE REV. DR. PHILIP EDGCUMBE HUGHES (continued from last issue) VI THE HARMONY OF PLATO AND ARISTOTLE In view of the fact that ARISTOTLE had been PLATO's pupil and had absorbed and reinterpreted his master's tenets, it was not altogether vain to expect that there should be points of affinity and indeed identity between their systems of philosophy. The task of forging a synthesis had already in some measure been undertaken by ALEXANDRIAN scholars of the third and fourth centuries PLOTINUS (c. 204-270 A.D.), the father of Neoplatonism, had produced a system in which important Platonic and Aristotelian themes were fused. PORPHYRY (c. 233-302 A.D.), PLOTINUS' pupil and biographer, besides composing an introduction (Isagoge) to ARISTOTLE's Categories and numerous commentaries on the writings of PLATO and ARISTOTLE, al~"' published a treatise the precise object of which was to demonstrate that the thought of the two great philosophers was essentially one ( 'l!Epl -roO f!l<XV Elvm -r~v nAcrrColvo<; Ka:l 'AptaTOTEAOU<; a!pwtv). Jewish by birth and pagan by intellectual persuasion, PORPHYRY was also a violent assailant of the Christian faith. JAMBLICHUS, who died c. 330 A.D., was PORPHYRYs most illustrious pupil, and he
