AMMONIUS SACCAS PDF

Plato and Aristotle in Agreement? Author s : George E. It is argued that Ammonius was an independent thinker who, though a Platonist, had a weaker commitment to Plato than most of his contemporary Platonists, and hence was uninterested in interschool polemics. Rather, his concern was to search for the truth in philosophy, which led him to study the works of both Plato and Aristotle, and appreciate them according to their merits. Focusing on the underlying thought behind the texts, Ammonius set aside doctrines forged by later philosophers, points of detail, and also certain flaws of the philosophers themselves, and reached an understanding of Platonic and Aristotelian philosophy as a whole, concluding that their basic doctrines are essentially the same.

This latter view has both been subsequently contested [5] and supported [6] [7] by more recent scholarship. Some scholars supporting the view of the Indian origins of Ammonius Saccas have also contended that said ancestry is consistent with the passion of his foremost student Plotinus for India, and helps to explain the philosophical similarities between Vedanta and Neoplatonism which are increasingly attributed to Indian influence.

The most famous pupil of Ammonius Saccas was Plotinus who studied under Ammonius for eleven years. According to Porphyry, in , at the age of 28, Plotinus went to Alexandria to study philosophy: In his twenty-eighth year he [Plotinus] felt the impulse to study philosophy and was recommended to the teachers in Alexandria who then had the highest reputation; but he came away from their lectures so depressed and full of sadness that he told his trouble to one of his friends.

The friend, understanding the desire of his heart, sent him to Ammonius, whom he had not so far tried. He went and heard him, and said to his friend, "This is the man I was looking for.

This conversion is contested by the Christian writers Jerome and Eusebius , who state that Ammonius remained a Christian throughout his lifetime: [Porphyry] plainly utters a falsehood for what will not an opposer of Christians do? Ammonius fell from a life of piety into heathen customs. Ammonius held the divine philosophy unshaken and unadulterated to the end of his life.

His works yet extant show this, as he is celebrated among many for the writings which he has left. One way to explain much of the confusion concerning Ammonius is to assume that there were two people called Ammonius: Ammonius Saccas who taught Plotinus, and an Ammonius the Christian who wrote biblical texts.

To add to the confusion, it seems that Ammonius had two pupils called Origen: Origen the Christian , and Origen the Pagan. And since there were two Origens who were accepted as contemporaries it was easy for later Christians to accept that there were two individuals named Ammonius, one a Christian and one a Pagan. He apprehended well the views of each of the two philosophers [Plato and Aristotle] and brought them under one and the same nous and transmitted philosophy without conflicts to all of his disciples, and especially to the best of those acquainted with him, Plotinus, Origen, and their successors.
