Reading Ficino and the NeoPlatonists makes me realise what a very Protestant relationship I have with Plato, almost entirely unmediated by things other people have thought about him.

In this chapter I have achieved one of my long term ambitions, saying "No, wait," to Socrates during a dialogue. I was writing both halves of the dialogue, which helps, but actually writing "No, wait," made me really happy even so.
