Platonic Philosophy

Posted by Antoine in News | Comments Off on Platonic Philosophy

The existential genesis of platonic philosophy by: Maria Elena Taiano platonic philosophy has as a typical trend the contraposition between the plane ideal of values (truth, goodness, Justice) the only considered true and real – and the reality of tangible facts, considered illusory and apparent. In these oppositions (values and facts, ideal and sensitive, reality and appearance) is the dualistic nature of Platonism, that had its background in Greek philosophy, but only Plato has developed in a systematic manner. We can say that the genesis of the Platonic Dualism is writable to an existential trauma caused in young Plato from the death of Socrates, man representing front in their eyes the same reincarnation of philosophy and whose high mission political and justice are exercised to the interior of the Polis. The idea is to shape or distinctive aspect of things, represented by the reason that constitutes the essence or the eternal unchanging model. In a sense logical, the common notion or overall envelope which can be enter the multiplice empirical.

The feeling is a knowledge derived from the senses, is the modification of the soul under the influence of the body. The feeling is not work of the corporeal senses, but of the soul, that uses them as bodies or instruments. The sensations when they are contrasting, stimulate the desire of intangible knowledge. The same feeling by itself, is not true knowledge. You can even be an obstacle to acquiring the truth.
