The Drama of Ideas

Martin Puchner

Oxford University Press

This last chapter outlines some theoretical consequences of dramatic Platonism for contemporary thought. It targets three thoughts evident today: corporealism, linguistic relativism, and cultural relativism. However, dramatic Platonism does not intend to dismiss these three; instead, it only points to the ways in which this doxa of our time might be inquired and reassessed, an act considered to be the most fundamental gesture of dramatic Platonism. To finish, the chapter suggests that it is time to revive Plato—not the discredited Plato of idealism, but the Plato of dramatic Platonism.

Keywords:   dramatic Platonism, corporealism, linguistic relativism, cultural relativism, Plato
