MOLINA AYALA, José. Theurgy: Iamblichus' Path to the Ineffable. Diánoia [online]. 2010, vol.55, n.65, pp. 125-149. ISSN 0185-2450.

Iamblichus of Chalcis postulated theurgy on metaphysical grounds as the only way of communion with the supreme principle of everything that exists. iamblichus set out this principle as a completely trascendent reality, ungraspable by reason, conceived matter as an instrument for the soul's ascent to that principle. Iamblichus proposed explicitly a mystic of communion with the cosmos and with the other souls, unlike Plotinus, who postulated the absolute withdrawal from everything and conceived the union with the one as an escape in solitude to the Solitary.

Palavras-chave : neoplatonism; mysticism; ineffable; deification.
