Passive Potentiality in the Physical Realm: Plotinus' Critique of Aristotle in Enneads II 5 
This article analyzes the status of passive potentiality of prime matter and sensible objects in Plotinus' Enneads. In particular, it will focus on Enneads II 5  and confront it with other treatises, specifically Enneads III 6 ; II 6 ; VI 2  and VI 3 . It aims at offering a new interpretation of treatise 25 and at proposing a reconstruction of Plotinus' notion of change in the sensible realm that illustrates both his critique of Aristotle's notion of substantial change and his acceptance of Aristotle's view of qualitative change.
