Eros as Hierarchical Principle: A Re-evaluation of Dionysius‘ Neoplatonism
Timothy Riggs received his Master of Arts at Dalhousie University in October 2009 and is now continuing his studies at the University of Jyväskylä in Finland. He is currently a doctoral member of the project “Subjectivity and Selfhood in the Arabic and Latin Traditions,” funded by the European Research Council. He is researching the role of subjectivity in the philosophy of Al-Fčrčbč« and the extent to which this role can be said to continue the teachings of the Athenian and Alexandrian Neoplatonists. The paper presented in this volume is an excerpt from his Master‘s thesis entitled: “Eros as Cosmic and Hierarchical Principle: Christ and the Socratic Hierarch in the Thought of Dionysius the Areopagite.” He can be reached at email@example.com.
