A Platonic Philosophy of Religion: A Process Perspective

A Platonic Philosophy of Religion: A Process Perspective by Daniel A. Dombrowski
English | Jan. 1, 2006 | ISBN: 0791462846 | 161 Pages | PDF | 2 MB

A Platonic Philosophy of Religion challenges traditional views of Plato s religious thought, arguing that these overstate the case for the veneration of Being as opposed to Becoming. Daniel A. Dombrowski explores how process or neoclassical perspectives on Plato s view of God have been mostly neglected, impoverishing both our view of Plato and our view of what can be said in contemporary philosophy of religion on a Platonic basis. . Looking at the largely ignored later dialogues, Dombrowski finds a dynamic theism in Plato and presents a new and very different Platonic philosophy of religion. The work s interpretive framework derives from the application of process philosophy and discusses the continuation of Plato s thought in the works of Hartshorne and Whitehead."
