“According to Plato every soul desires the good, the true and the beautiful especiallyartists andartisans! These are absolute and eternal qualities that arise from a single source. So anything that is beautiful is naturally good and true, too.
Is this idealistic? Naive? I admit, we have just stepped into the 21st century. Nowadays everything seems so relative, and Platonic idealism so distant. But I feel a greater kinship with his ancient philosophies than with our last century’s post modernistic view of the world. Everyone is not right, and everything is not equal.”
