The paper deals with the problems of the ideas of individuals in Plotinus’ system.
The author claims that the concept as described in Enneads should not be seen
as separate from the principles of Plotinus’ ontology. It may be proofed by pointing
out the psychological context in which Plotinus puts this issue and the kind of understanding
of noetic sphere in terms of multitude, which entails the individualization
of souls, typical for Plotinus. He takes the ideas of individuals as connected
with the concept of alethe–s anthropos — the essential way of being of a man in the
hypostasis of the Intellect (nous).
