I am not a Platonist. I understand that the title of the blog is “Modern Platonist,” but I can only flirt with Plato and Platonism, not claim to know or understand him. However, I do have a passion for Plato and his philosophy and I have had the extreme fortune of being taught by some foremost scholars in Platonic philosophy. If you truly want to learn a lot about Plato, then you should listen to their lectures and read their books, I am nowhere close to them. If, however, you want to listen to someone slightly younger than them apply basic Platonism to the world and try to work himself through the confusion of our age, then you have come to the right place. Either way, I encourage you to comment and challenge me if you believe what I am writing is complete and utter rubbish. If I have understood Plato at all, then I would be a hypocrite to preach to you, or claim that I know everything there is to know about everything.
If you expect this blog to be my “original” work, then you are in the wrong place. Someone who wants to only make friends will never make them, someone who is worried about having fun will never have fun, and someone who is trying to be original will utterly fail at it. I will speak from the heart and reason and, seeing how a lot of people have written a lot about Plato, there will be a lot of stuff that you have already heard somewhere else, perhaps. Hopefully I will help you see it under a new light, if not, then, as I said before, you are probably much wiser than me and your mentoring would be greatly appreciated.
