    Platonic love, a supremely affectionate relationship between human beings in which sexual intercourse is neither desired nor practiced. In this sense, it most often refers to a heterosexual relationship. It may also be used to cover that stage of courtly love in which sexual intercourse is indefinitely postponed. At its centre are two chapters exploring the idea of Platonic 'origins' in philosophy, and of Platonic 'foundations' for philosophical politics, as these have been read by Coleridge, Nietzsche, Heidegger, Popper, and Murdoch among others. Melissa Lane argues that the search for Platonic origins is an artefact of post-modern literalism.

    Much has been written in recent years on Plato as a critic of literature; but no commentaries have appeared in English on the Ion, or the opening books of the Republic in which Plato launches his attack on poetry, since the early years of this century. This volume brings together these texts and the relevant section of Republic It aims to provide the reader with a commentary which takes 3/5(3).   In the light of his Platonic understanding, Lewis summarizes his criticism of Gaius and Titius thus: “The operation of The Green Book and its kind is to produce what may be called Men without Chests.” 16 But without “chests,” i.e., without the middle part of the soul that Plato called thumos, neither creative energy nor self-sacrifice.

This book endorses Coleridge's statement: "nothing can permanently please which does not contain in itself the reason why it is so". It conceives 'Kubla Khan' as of a hypnotic poem, in which the "obtrusive rhythms" produce a hypnotic, emotionally heightened response, giving false security to the "Platonic Censor", so that our imagination is.

Now that his textually chaotic œuvre has been edited in its entirety, Coleridge emerges as a major post-Kantian philosopher. Coleridge’s early study of Unitarian and Platonic thought together with his confrontation of Humean scepticism enabled him to rise to the principal speculative challenge of the age: that of uniting Kant’s philosophy with a practical form of Christian religion.

Coleridge and Contemplation is a multi-disciplinary volume on Samuel Taylor Coleridge, founding poet of British Romanticism, critic, and author of philosophical, political, and theological works.

In his philosophical writings, Coleridge developed his thinking about the symbolizing imagination, a precursor to contemplation, into a theory of contemplation itself, which for him occurs in its.

'PHILOSOPHY, or the doctrine and discipline of ideas' as S. Coleridge understood it, is the theme of this book. It considers the most vital and mature vein of Coleridge's thought to be 'the contemplation of ideas objectively, as existing powers'. A theory of ideas emerges in critical engagement with thinkers including Plato, Plotinus, Böhme, Kant, and Schelling.

Wordsworth and Coleridge (as well as Blake) were the originators of that movement in England. Their poetry is unquestionably marked by strong spiritual currents. In fact, there are many reasons to believe that such a religious-minded literature could be regarded as “hymns to the gods” and thus be admissible in Plato’s republic.

Coleridge was immersed in German intellectual thinking, and, at first, was a Spinozist. Her first book was on Sartre. She wrote about Plato as well, in The Fire and the Sun. She is a deep, Christian Platonist. To be a Platonist and a novelist is to feel a tension and that really comes to the fore in The Black Prince.

Coleridge made the same contrast, saying that everyone was born either a Platonist or an Aristotelian, meaning that Plato is otherworldly, a dealer in abstractions, while Aristotle is the plain.Source texts include Plato's Dialogues, and the writings of Neoplatonists and the early Christians who were largely responsible for assimilating Platonic ideas into a Christian culture; and there are essays on more than thirty English authors from the Middle Ages to the twentieth century, including Shakespeare, Milton, Blake, Wordsworth, Yeats.
