“The safest general characterization of the European philosophical tradition is that it consists of a series of footnotes to Plato.”

    Matthew, I own the previous edition of your book, which I found valuable. Would you say the new edition is quite different? I would be happy to buy it if you think it would be worthwhile to do so. BTW, have you written on Whitehead and Coleridge anywhere? I would sure love some help with, “What Coleridge Thought” by Owen Barfield. I’m any case, thanks for your work.

      I’ve written a bit on Coleridge (and Barfield’s book) on my blog: https://footnotes2plato.com/?s=Coleridge

      I would say the new edition is a significant revision and expansion, but the underlying vision was already clear enough in the third edition (2018).

        Thank you. I’ll purchase the new edition. Thx for directing me to the bit on Coleridge and Barfield.

    Look forward to viewing this. I’m so glad you published a revised version of your book and will get it.

    Thank you for all the ways you enter into dialogues with people on Whitehead’s thought.
