Between Chora and the Good

This chapter examines the views of Plato on the concept of feeling and knowing and on the philosophical relevance of the Holy Spirit. It explains that according to Plato's works, the way beyond being is dual: with the uranian Good beyond being in his Republic, which is the cause of knowing and being, and its chthonic supplement in his Timeaus, which is the procreative receptacle that gives beings place. This chapter explains that though the chthonic aspect does not appear to be a promising subject of discourse, it is of special importance and relevant to theology.

Keywords:   Plato, Holy Spirit, beyond being, duality, Republic, Timeaus, uranian Good, chthonic supplement
