Manly P. Hall: Neoplatonism Seminar 2 - Iamblichus on the Mysteries

This is the second of a five-part seminar series on "Doctrines of Neoplatonism". Part 2 was recorded in Los Angeles on Wednesday, October 19, 1955.

Manly Hall considered Neoplatonism (~3rd to 7th century C.E.) to be one of the most important philosophical systems that a seeker of wisdom could study. Beginning with Plotinus, this movement brought back the spirit of pre-Socratic thought as well as that of Socrates, Plato and Aristotle. Consciousness was considered as primary and existing before matter - that the thought world proceeded the material realm, and therefore, more important for each of us to explore and experience.
