Abstract

Yet, about his profound, nay decisive indebtedness to Plato there can be no doubt. This influence efficiently directed his thought not only during his formative years but even more so during a later epoch, in part conveyed through the Augustinian preoccupations of the friends he made during his sojourn in Paris, and in part as a consequence of the increasingly mathematical orientation of his philosophy, which naturally approached him of the Platonic tradition and partially eclipsed the Aristotelian facet of his thought produced by his scholastic education.
