Normally in nowadays philosophical research the term ‚Neoplatonism‹ is coined and it was used the first time by Jacob Brucker in the first half of the 18th century. But there are signs that the concept is much older. So this essay follows the trace of the term ›Neoplatonism‹ from german philosophical historians, like Büsching and Brucker, back to the Cambridge Platonists and tries to demonstrate that the origin of the concept is based on some texts of the late antiquity which act first on the research of the early modern philosophy.
