Puritan Board Freshman
ive been studying philosophy for quite a while. I took a Philosophy course in high school where I read quite a bit of Plato and Aristotle. I'm a freshman in college this year, and I'm in an ancient philosophy course. So far, we've read Plato's Gorgias and Meno. I have read the Apology several times. Many of Plato's ideas really appeal to me( I much prefer Plato to Aristotle) St. Augustine viewed Plato favorably, and Luther even said some nice things about Plato. I also generally enjoy reading the Stoics( Seneca, Marcus Aurelius, etc) All this being said, whenever I read Philosophy, I always remembers Paul's warning. I realize that one can not accept Plato and he Stoics in totality as a Christian, but I also believe that there's a lot of truth in both. You have to separate the good from the bad. What do y'all think?
