What we are learning

Dates: Saturdays from 19 January
Where: 11 Mandeville Place, W1U 3AJ

This term we shall read Ennead I:8 – ‘on what are and whence come evils’. This is a very late text by Plotinus dealing with evil in a surprising way. It follows on from what Plato said in Theaetetus: ‘evils cannot be eradicated, for there must always be something in opposition to the good’. If everything comes from the good, how does evil arise and what exactly can it consist of?
