Abstract


Diverse researches have shown that the thematization of Auto-conscience is not exclusive of Modern Philosophy. Plotinus is perhaps the first to have reflected on the fundamental questions of a theory of auto-conscience and, this, confronting the Skepticism of Sextus Empiricus. Auto conscience is proper to the hipostasis of the Noûs as a differentiated unity of Intelligence, Intelligible and Intelection that, nontheless constitutes itself in its vain effort to grasp the absolutely simple Unity of the One. The article examines a recent objection to Plotinus according to which he limits himstef to describing in what measure can Intelligence be reconstructed as coming before the relation, but does not resolve the paradox about the possibility of having an identity result from a relationship.
