    Unlike Gerson , this one-volume book consists of lengthy articles on general movements in Neoplatonism, including early Neoplatonism, late Neoplatonism, Arabic Neoplatatonism, Christian Neoplatonism, and so on. Although the bibliography is out of date, the articles are very helpful, especially for undergraduates.   Recent work however has provided a new perspective on the philosophical issues in Neoplatonism and Pauliina Remes new introduction to the subject is the first to take account of this fresh research and provides a reassessment of Neoplatonism's philosophical Edition: 1st Edition.

    Despite Platonism’s unquestioned claim to being one of the most influential movements in the history of philosophy, for a long time the conventional wisdom was that Platonists of late antiquity—or Neoplatonists—were so focused on other-worldly metaphysics that they simply neglected any serious study of the sensible world, which after all is ‘merely’ an image of the intelligible world. Read this book on Questia. Although Neoplatonism has long been studied by classicists, until recently most philosophers saw the ideas of Plotinus et al as a lot of religious/magical mumbo-jumbo.
