"Personal note: When I was a little kid my mother told me not to stare into the sun. So once when I was six, I did. At first the brightness was overwhelming, but I had seen that before. I kept looking, forcing myself not to blink, and then the brightness began to dissolve. My pupils shrunk to pinholes and everything came into focus and for a moment I understood. The doctors didn't know if my eyes would ever heal."
Platonism is alive and well, it has merely taken on a different guise. In science. But the myth is still alive too. Platonism heavily influenced Christianity. I find the New Testament to be replete with explicitly Platonic phrases and allusions.
Democracy,justice,christianity,ethics,secularism ,islam,judaism,hinduism,buddhism...Platonism for the people.
