Plotinus on Unity - Dictionary of Arguments

Holz I 30
Unity/Late Antiquity/Middle Ages/Holz: understood God as the unity and pure essence (in Europe everything goes back to Plotinus).
Unity/single/determinateness: what as this or that, i.e. can be seen as a determinate, is already one of many, for it is determined by the difference to all others.
With this, however, it presupposes all others and ultimately everything. The unity is then regarded as truth.
Plotinus: distinguishes the one from the countable units of the set: the true one is not like the other ones by participating as a different (form of) unity.
