Where: 11 Mandeville Place, W1U 3AJ
‘Matter’ should not be considered in the modern sense of physical material (e.g. clay or flesh) but as a concept indicating the furthest and last emanation of creation; the point at which creative power stops. It is more like ‘non-substance’ and contrary to intelligible Form. Plotinus actually speaks of two kinds of matter – intelligible and sensible.
