Neoplatonism (νεοπλατωνισμός) is a term which describes the Neoplatonic Philosophy and it is a development of Plato's (Πλάτων) metaphysical teachings and religious system. The neoplatonic current was the main philosophical school of the late antiquity. This philosophical movement begins in the 3rd century A.C. with Plotinos (Πλωτίνος) who was one of the most important representatives of the Hellenic philosophy and the founder of Neoplatonism.
We have presented the opinions of Zenon and Epictetus in this blog, but we have not written anything on Stoic Philosophy, that great school of antiquity. We don’t often come across Philosophy in blogs about Hekate or even in blogs dealing with the broader range subject of Witchcraft and Magick. In “A Witch Alone at the Crossroads” we consider Philosophy as foundamental for understanding the cult and the mysteries of the Goddess. There is no way that an appropriate understanding of Neoplatonism and of the Chaldean Oracles can be achieved, without an understanding of the basic teachings of the systems which influenced them.
In ancient Hellas, the highest level of Philosophy was Theology and it greatly influenced the religion of that time.
