MONK Baltes: Gnomon

AMMONIUS the MONK Baltes: Gnomon 56 1984 207, that the question of the relationship between the first principle and intelligence-being was debated in Ammonius’s school but not resolved in a univocal and definitive way. That this problem was the object of discussion in the Platonic schools of the time has been rightly shown by Whittaker regarding Origen, C. Cels. VII, 38: VChr 23 1969 92 = Studies in Platonism and Patristic Thought, London 1984, XIII. Plotinus and Origen the Neoplatonist seem to have taken different directions: while Origen remained more faithful to the letter of Ammonius’s teaching without developing its implications, Plotinus seems to have taken to its extreme consequences what may have been implicit, but not yet clearly stated, in Ammonius’s doctrine of the first principle see esp.
