Aufgabengebiet

“The Reception of Heraclitus in Late Antiquity and the Islamic World”

The core of the project will be devoted to the study of the trends and the philosophical relevance of the interpretation of Heraclitus in Plotinus, in the post-Plotinian Neoplatonists, and in the Islamic World, in particular in the Plotiniana Arabica (i.e. the so-called “Theology of Aristotle” and the “Sayings of the Greek Sage”). I shall mainly highlight the following two key tendencies: on the one hand, the influence of Plotinus’ interpretation of Heraclitus plays a major role in all subsequent readings of the Presocratic and determines some of its key features; on the other hand, the individual interpretations differ remarkably from one another in ways and for reason which I shall try to explain in detail. In addition, also the Christian and the Gnostic interpretation of Heraclitus will be taken into account, since they contributed to the overall understanding of the philosophy of Heraclitus in Late Antiquity and exerted a considerable influence in the Islamic World, too. The account of the philosophy of Heraclitus given by Hippolytus of Rome, which mixes Christian and Gnostic views, has, for instance, been one of the sources of the important Arabic doxographical work of the Pseudo-Ammonius.
