Abstract This article presents a reading of the concepts of Flight (phyge) and Assimilation (homofosis) in Plotinus' exegesis of Plato. It considers a certain debate and interpretation that fluctuate between a 'literalist' and an 'allegorical' understanding of the process indicated by these terms. What is the meaning of the "journey" of Flight and Assimilation in Plotinus? Is this "Flight away from here" a kind of denial of the body, or the world and the senses, as some commentators have argued, or do the texts make possible another reading? What is meant by assimilation as unification (henosis) with God, how does it occur, and what makes it possible?
