Physics and metaphysics of logoi. Nature of the Neoplatonic exegetical universe

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Demiurge; Kosmos; Logoi; Nature; Neoplatonism; Theology.

The "skopos" of the "Timaeus" is not simply physiology because nature is strictly linked to the Demiurge and the Soul, and this relation points out that "physis" depends on theology. The aim of this paper is to discuss the role of nature in the Neoplatonic macro- and micro-cosmos, so that it turns out that the study of nature cannot be disconnected from theology and, accordingly, the literary theory cannot be disconnected from the development of the Neoplatonic metaphysics.
