Abstract

Plotin Traité 12 II 4 . Les Éditions du Cerf, Paris, 2014, Euros 30. The present translation and commentary of Plotinus’ treatise ii 4 is the seventeenth volume 1 in the series first established under the direction of Pierre Hadot and currently directed by Jean-François Balaudé, Dominic J. O’Meara and Gwenaëlle Aubry. The collection follows a tendency established in the last decades in Plotinian scholarship to devote a whole volume to a single Plotinian treatise by an author specialized in the topics addressed in that work. As the directors of the collection point out, 2 this tendency is the result of progress and growth achieved in the study of Plotinus’ thought in the past five decades. However, considering that the series began almost three decades ago, it would be desirable, I believe, to speed up the publication rate. If seventeen volumes are to be published every three decades, the collection will end spanning almost a century. The book opens with the acknowledgements of the translator, followed by the useful Table de correspondance , where the systematic and chronological orders of Plotinus’ treatises are addressed. The next pages are dedicated to the Avant-Propos , written by the directors of
