HOW TO CONCEIVE OF THE PERCEIVABLE? HADES AS A METAPHOR OF THE SENSIBLE WORLD (Ako nazerat na to, co je vnimatelne? Hades ako metafora zmysloveho sveta u Plotina)
Languages of publication
Among others, when considering the sensible world, Plotinus makes use of the image of Hades and the concept of matter. The aim of the paper is to positively re-interpret his negative metaphor of Hades as well as the negative concept of matter. The question is, whether after having accepted the delusional character of the sensible world we can still claim a plausible similarity between the sensible and the intelligible. Is a valuable relationship to things and the others still to be found in such a world?
