seemed to have been one of Manly P. Hall’s favorite subjects down through the years, he spoke and wrote about it frequently during his long career. In the foreword to his book “Lectures on Ancient Philosophy,”
Mr. Hall declared that Neoplatonism was the basis of his own personal
philosophy. After years of study and reflection he had come to believe that the doctrines of Neoplatonism had descended to us in a purer form that any other philosophical system — a system that seemed more suitable to the active, extroverted Western cultural mindset. This book is based upon the five-part audio lecture series Doctrines of Neoplatonism,
delivered by Manly Hall in 1983 to students at the Philosophical Research Society. Manly Hall believed Neoplatonism’s simple precepts could enable anyone
to live a more philosophic life. Richard Geldard
