    December 2, 2017 Weekly Theme for Contemplation: The Platonic Quest

    Dialectic, and dialectic alone, goes directly to the first principle and is the only science which does away with hypotheses in order to make her ground secure; the eye of the soul, which is literally buried in an outlandish slough, is by her gentle aid lifted upwards; and she uses as handmaids and helpers in the work of conversation, the sciences. — Plato

    December 6, 2017 Theme for Contemplation: The Platonic Quest

    The inner freedom from the practical desire,

    The release from action and suffering, release from the inner

    And the outer compulsion, yet surrounded

    By a grace of sense, a white light still and moving.

    — T.S. Eliot
