    Confessions of a Rational Mystic exposes both aspects of this transitional thinker through a multidimensional interpretation of his Pioslogion. It treats Anselm's famous proof for the existence of God as both a rational argument and an exercise in mystical theology, analyzing the logic of its reasoning while providing a phenomenological account of the vision of God that is embedded within it. Neoplatonism was a major influence on Christian theology throughout Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages in the West. This was due to St. Augustine of Hippo, who was influenced by the early Neoplatonists Plotinus and Porphyry, as well as the works of the Christian writer Pseudo-Dionysius the Areopagite, who was influenced by later Neoplatonists, such as Proclus and Damascius.

    It is merely the lowest rung on the ladder of existence, with God at the very top. Each part of God's creation has good in it, but the lower each part is on the chain of being the more likely it is to be evil. Augustine, at this point, regarded human evil not as a substance (as the Manichees would) but rather as a denial of the true existence. Neoplatonism is a strand of Platonic philosophy that emerged in the second century AD against the background of Hellenistic philosophy and religion. The term does not encapsulate a set of ideas as much as it encapsulates a chain of thinkers which began with Ammonius Saccas and his student Plotinus (c. /5 – AD) and which stretches to the 5th century AD.

Rationalism is either indifferent or hostile to history, and some historians see history as irrational. This judgment is revealing, because for them all things are divided into either the rational or the irrational, as though the universe can be so divided.

Reality, though, is not limited to these two categories, nor is rationality the criterion by which reality is to be judged. [1] Aurelius Augustine, The City of God, Book 8, Chapter 13; Platonists preferred this name over the Academics because of their love for their master teacher Plato.

Paradoxically, though, this book never really argues the thesis, it just spams s:. This book presents an analysis, development, and defense of a number of central ideas in the great logician Kurt Gödel's writings on the philosophy and foundations of mathematics and logic.

The argument is structured around Gödel's three philosophical heroes, Plato, Leibniz and Husserl, and includes treatment of the incompleteness theorems and other technical results.Platonism and Rationalism.

Descartes himself believed that his rationalist method led belief in the existence of God, so rationalism does not always lead to atheism.

But, in the modern era, it did lead to a view of God called “Deism”, which is the belief that an intelligent designer set the world in motion, but does not have a personal.In book 7 his view of Manichaeism as the correct doctrine soon alters.

He eventually picks up a different philosophy, known as Neo-Platonism. This philosophy is the final turning point that points him in the right direction; he now has a philosophy that goes hand in hand with his theology, which will ultimately guide his future works/writings.
