Philosophy and the Gods

Platonism originated in a pagan culture: are the Gods an integral part of Platonic philosophy?


Platonic philosophy took the reality of the Gods as a fundamental truth, perhaps the primary reason why it fell into disrepute in the Christian era: in our time the whole question of a multiplicity of Gods seems to be hopelessly superstitious. But what was the basis of a philosophical acceptance of the Gods by the leading thinkers of the ancient world? This lecture looks at the metaphysical and ethical implications of this long-neglected worldview: does it allow a deeper insight into the fundamental nature of the universe and its source? Does it enable the individual to take charge of his or her own path to truth? After the lecture there will be time set aside for discussion.
