Rational Spirituality and Divine Virtue in Plato: A Modern Interpretation and Philosophical Defense of Platonism

Rational Spirituality and Divine Virtue in Plato: A Modern Interpretation and Philosophical Defense of Platonism

English | 2016 | ISBN: 1438460252 | Pages | PDF | 1,3 + 0,8 MB

Michael LaFargue presents an important and accessible aspect of Plato s legacy largely overlooked today: a variety of personal spirituality based on reason and centered on virtue. Plato s Virtue-Forms are transcendent in their goodness, ideals that Platonists can use to improve character and become like God so far as is humanly possible. LaFargue constructs a model of inductive Socratic reasoning capable of acquiring knowledge of these perfect Virtue-Forms, then scales back claims about these Forms to what can be supported by this kind of reasoning. This is a critical theory, but also a pluralistic one that accommodates modern cultural diversity. A how-to chapter provides detailed descriptions of the rules of Socratic reasoning basic to this spirituality, which any interested individual can practice today. LaFargue supports his interpretation by a close reading of the Greek text of key passages in Plato s dialogues. The work also undertakes a broader philosophical consideration, discussing the philosophical foundations proposed for this Platonism in relation to the thought of G. E. Moore, Ludwig Wittgenstein, Martin Heidegger, Friedrich Nietzsche, and Richard Rorty."
