I used this book for my thesis, which applied persistence theory to Plotinus' metaphysics.

Clear-cut sections tackle different aspects of Plotinus' philosophy in quite some detail. The sections are written by prominent Plotinus scholars, which makes for good references and an essential read for anyone wanting to know more about Plotinus' worldview.

This is one of the best books that I used for my research in to Plotinus' view of the soul. I focused in on the freedom and determinism question in Plotinus' ontology in Stephen Clarke's article.
