Kenneth tells us from the outset that his is a personal, and thus highly subjective story. He recounts his father’s life from his own perspective, starting with his own birth, and his earliest recognition of his father’s remarkable stature. Kenneth humbly presents himself as a lifelong student of PB as well as his devoted son; he makes no claims to be his heir or to have the complete story—he simply tells us what he knows and what he experienced. He openly shares his dreams, visions, correspondence and conversations with us, many of which give us a momentary insight into PB’s character and the impact of his presence. This anecdotal volume is informative, charming, and a natural companion to the Notebooks, particularly to Volume 8, where PB records his own reflections about his life.

“This truly great book is the source of much that is most precious in the whole Western spiritual tradition.” —Jacob Needleman
“MacKenna's translation of The Enneads continues to capture the 'voice' of Plotinus as no other English version does.” —Huston Smith
“For the rapture of its wild genius, MacKenna's Plotinus is the most inspiring and instructive single volume in my library . . . a source of the deepest ideas the mind can think, it is also a bible of beauty.” —James Hillman
This book is simply the most exalted translation of one of the finest products of the human mind. Our edition makes it truly “the thinking person's Plotinus” as well: Endnotes compare MacKenna's original translation with hundreds of debatable revisions made by editors in editions published after his death, and show how other major translators (A.H. Armstrong, K.S. Guthrie, Thomas Taylor) handle these same passages.
Bonus: a detailed appendix from Anthony Damiani's groundbreaking work with The Enneads.
