Headword: Ὁμοίωσις
Adler number: omicron,314
Translated headword: assimilation, becoming like
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
"['Becoming like' is] twofold: the one [that makes reference] to the same [form], and the one [that makes reference to] a different [form]." But when Plotinus says “becoming like a god”, it should be taken in a different way.[1]
Greek Original:
Ὁμοίωσις διττή, ἡ μέν τις ταὐτόν, ἡ δὲ ἕτερον. ὅτε δὲ λέγει Πλωτῖνος: ὁμοίωσις θεῷ, ἄλλον τρόπον ληπτέον.
Notes:
For this headword see already omicron 313.
[1] cf. Plotinus Enneads, 1.2.2.4-10. According to Plotinus' text, it is plain that the word "form" (εἶδος ) should be assumed. In the passage at issue Plotinus says: "the one demands the presence of the same form in those things that are similar". See phi 238.
