A philosophical remark on a piece of the Enneads written through the final nice Neoplatonist philosopher, Plotinus. The treatise is entitled 'Concerning health' and was once written at a overdue degree in Plotinus' existence whilst he used to be being affected by an affliction that was once almost immediately to kill him.

Plotinus' perspectives on how one should still dwell with the intention to fulfil oneself as a individual are as proper now as they have been within the 3rd century advert. All Greek and Latin is translated, whereas brief summaries introducing the content material of every bankruptcy support to make Plotinus'
argument transparent even to the non-specialist.
