The soul as dynamis in Gregory of Nyssa

Abstract:
This chapter investigates Gregory of Nyssa’s understanding of the soul in his dialogue De Aanima et Rresurrectione. This text has often been interpreted against the backdrop of Platonic doctrine. Close attention to Gregory’s wording and especially his use of the concept of power (dynamis) in this connection, however, shows that his argument is better explained on the basis of the doctrine of the resurrection of the body which he set out to defend in his treatise.
