    • Hi Jason,
      thank you for your comment. Cusanus would have been in full agreement with you.

      Neoplatonism is a wonderful, dynamic and immensely important philosophy.

      Congratulations on your series ‘Highlights of the Western Tradition’, I’m appreciating it very much.

      Best wishes, Phil
