Coombs, W.M. Aristotle's Harmony with Plato on Separable and Immortal Soul

Research Projects
Neoplatonic Studies 2014 -
The Neoplatonic school of thought engages the substantial issues of Platonism with an emphasis on the theory and practice required to achieve the goal of Platonic divinization. My work in the field focused initially on the Neoplatonic claim of a fundamental harmony between the philosophies of Plato and his student Aristotle, and is currently focused on assessing various Neoplatonic thinkers' approaches to the issue of the ontological status of the human soul as it pertains to the issues surrounding Platonic divinization.
