Myth, Virtue, Philosophy, Metaphysics, and Theology. Platonism is the original spiritual heritage of the western world. Its philosophy shaped the way we understand ethics, virtue, and beauty. Its theology illuminated our view of the afterlife, Gods, and the soul of man. After centuries of oppression under Christianity, Platonism is ready for a rebirth, a renaissance. The west is ready for a spiritual path that promotes reason over faith, allegory over literalism, and philosophy over belief. We no longer have to choose between the irrational Abrahamic traditions and the cold cynicism of atheism. Here, we explore the traditions, philosophy, and wisdom of this spiritual path and how it applies to modern life.
