A study of the descent of Western idealism in the Platonic and Neoplatonic traditions. Many creative thinkers, philosophers and mystics have profoundly influenced the course of modern civilization, from St. Thomas Aquinas to Ralph Waldo Emerson, Paracelsus, Francis Bacon, Jakob Boehme and Immanuel Kant. By knowing these men themselves we can interpret correctly the force and character of their ideals through the examples of their lives and ideas. Companion volume to Journey in Truth.
