Plato's Near Miss: Soul as Self-Moved

The title of this blog post references the title of the third chapter in Hartshorne's Insights and Oversights book.  After reading that chapter I must recommend it in particular (if not the book in general), for it illuminates Plato according to a process, speculative, and systematic metaphysic.

After Nature readers may also want to check out: "Hartshorne, Plato, and the Concept of God" (D. Dombrowski) and "Philosophy after Hartshorne" (Viney) wherein we learn of the "Peirce, Whitehead, Hartshorne" axis - established by those philosophers for whom the legacies of Plato and Aristotle were so crucially important.
