Christoph Quarch

Plato's Metaphysics of Soul

In the beginning of the 21st century, at the edge of the digital era, humanity is bad need of a new philosophical framework. Otherwise we shall not be capable to face the multiple challenges of both the rise of AI and the uprising climate-change. But were to find a proper mindset? Christoph Quarch gives the answer: In Plato. Given that we understand his teachings well, the oldest thinking seems to be most contemporary. For Plato offers a 'Metaphysics of Aliveness' by which being is understood life — and human existence as an invitation to grow and blossom. By his re-lecture of Plato's final dialogue “The Laws” Quarch's essay outlines the key-features of a most fascinating and inspiring approach to flourishing humanity.
«Soul, my friend, seems to have been misunderstood by almost everyone — both concerning her energy and all her other aspects and her coming-into-being. The truth is that Soul belongs to the principles as she is older than any phaenomenon and directs any change and reorganization of everything.» (Plato, Laws 892a).
