ABSTRACT: In this article, I analyze the role of the individual soul in the hierarchic Plotinian system with emphasis on the moment of the awakening of the soul and its ascension on the ladder of truth. In order to do so, I elaborate the view of the three hypostases. Doing so, I follow the path of the chain-like procession until the last shackle, matter, not without mentioning the importance of the dichotomy object-subject in Plotinian view. After I briefly talk about matter as the limit of existence, I insist on the necessity of a complimentary action directed upwards. In the end, I accentuate the double nature of the individual Soul in these movement of complementary actions as I analyze the function of Sight in relation with Beauty and the appearance of Eros.
KEYWORDS: One, Intellect, Soul, self-awareness, procession.
