Single Vision - The intelligible heart of philosophy

The unity of the Platonic vision rediscovered


“Those who admire every thing which has real being, are to be called philosophers.” Socrates, the Republic.

There is a popular opinion that Plato is in some sense a man of dualistic vision, seeing all things as divided or opposed or separated. But this can hardly be the case in reality, as an unbiased appreciation of his writings readily reveals, thus Socrates says “For, O excellent young man, to endeavour to separate everything from everything, is both inelegant, and the province of one rude and destitute of philosophy.” (The Sophist) This lecture will be an initial exploration of truth, as the single foundation of all genuine philosophic endeavour and love.
