The chapters of this book are excerpted from the author’s much larger book titled God’s Great Tradition of Global Wisdom: Guru Yoga-Satsang in the Integral Age (published in November 2021 by Bright Alliance) by Brad Reynolds. The perpetual struggle between Platonists and Aristotelians shows up in Western history as the conflict between mysticism (Plato) versus common sense (Aristotle), religion versus rationality, idealism versus empiricism, the “other world” of archetypes versus “this world” of Nature. This clash gave birth to both the theology of the Church and inspired scientists trying to break away from her dominant grip. Western democracy was born with the Greeks where many of the topics we struggle with today, from autocratic tyranny to how liberty demands cooperative partnership (Aristotle), not just top-down leadership (Plato), are as relevant now as back then, twenty-five centuries ago. They pondered on what is ethical or Good and what constitutes true Beauty. How our leaders and populace would do well to study again the wisdom and rational debates of the Greeks and their wisest teachers. Indeed, the entire practice of our universities and academies owe their existence to what began in ancient Athens and her realm of influence. We stand on the shoulders of giants, and many of them were non-Christian Mystic.
