The Enneads by Plotinus is a work which is central to the history of philosophy in late antiquity. This volume is the first complete edition of the Enneads in English for over seventy-five years, and also includes Porphyry's Life of Plotinus. Led by Lloyd P. Gerson, a team of experts present up-to-date translations which are based on the best available text, the editio minor of Henry and Schwyzer and its corrections. The translations are consistent in their vocabulary, making the volume ideal for the study of Plotinus' philosophical arguments. They also offer extensive annotation to assist the reader, together with cross-references and citations which will enable users more easily to navigate the texts. This monumental edition will be invaluable for scholars of Plotinus with or without ancient Greek, as well as for students of the Platonic tradition.
Crucial for students of Plotinus looking to engage with his philosophy, and including translations of all his Enneads and Life of Plotinus, this is the first single-volume English edition for more than seventy-five years. Ideal for study, the book uses a consistent vocabulary and offers extensive notes, citations and cross-references.

Great Go-To 1 Volume Translation of The Enneads5 October 2018 - Published on Amazon.com
I splurged and bought this one, and I'm glad I did. A sense of clean and clear, reliable and readable on every page in every aspect in this beautiful one volume including intro summaries, annotations and key terms. A labor of love for scholars/translators full engaged with Plotinus and Platonism, I dare say, Platonists themselves, believers.

Excellent content, poor construction.26 December 2018 - Published on Amazon.com
I received this book for Christmas today. The contents are excellent! Although the construction of the book is poor. The paper quality is medium at best and the book is glued, not sewn. It is essentially a paperback put between hardcovers. It will not lay flat. Very disappointing for the price. Being printed by Cambridge University Press - the press that is world renowned for printing quality Bibles - you would have thought they produced a better quality product for this price point.
