    Jan 01,  · Wallis' book is probably the best and most up-to-date general guide to neoplatonism, with clear elucidation of its main schools and figures, a useful map to help contextualize them, and a great bibliography (current to about ) of original texts and secondary scholarship that makes this a book for seasoned scholars as well as beginners/5(2). Neoplatonism is a term used to designate a strand of Platonic philosophy that emerged in the third century AD against the background of Hellenistic philosophy and religion.

    So before we even get to Augustine, we must get a good picture of Plotinus and Neo-Platonism.

Here is a video on a general introduction to Neo-Platonism and Plotinus. Originally conceived, the series covers studies in Platonism, Neoplatonism, and the Platonic Tradition, which means it covers ancient philosophy in general but also the tradition in its medieval, modern, and post-modern "horizons." This means that the subseries publishes works, historically and thematically, across the whole "Platonic tradition.".
