Notes

Abstract: In this thesis I argue that the Proficient, the "truly happy person" of Plotinus's Enneads, is best understood as an incarnation of the Divine Mind (Chapter 2), a supernatural entity that imparts order to the sensible world. This entails that the Proficient has the epistemic privilege appropriate for such a being, which I articulate in detail (Chapter 3). If I am right in my contentions then there is a close connection between happiness and knowledge for Plotinus on which the Enneads is silent, but which I believe worthy of our serious consideration for manifold reasons (Conclusions).
