Roberto Radice

Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in libroChapter

Abstract

In the period under consideration, ineffability is connected to two questions of the greatest importance: that of the positive infinity of the Principle; and that of the value and representativeness of a "name". As to the former of these, we can see that Philo marks the moment of change within Platonism, and that Numenius represents an intermediate position. As to the latter, Plotinus continues Platonic tradition, while Philo and the Gnostics take a different route based on a strong conception of a name.
