Chapter Summary

In this chapter, the author intends to shed more light on Gregory of Nyssa's attempt at justifying Basil of Caesarea's views of έπίνoɩα and shows that in so doing he misrepresented Basil's (as well as Eunomius') views. ʾEπίνoɩα was placed in the context of the Trinitarian quarrels of the 4th century by Eunomius of Cyzicus'. Basil insisted on the exact significance of Plotinus' έπίνoɩα. Eunomius lists the Stoic ways of producing imaginary ideas as preserved in Sextus Empiricus.

Keywords: έπίνoɩα; Eunomius; Gregory of Nyssa
