In the western tradition every single philosopher has the in hero who is good is building off of plato and every single one of them who is bad has specifically denied. plato plato. Not because he was right about everything but because his trajectory was so correct his trajectory into the forms and following him. In that way. Like that gets you like so much. So that like i mean. The authors of the new testament are lake using platonic philosophy at like for people who are like. Well do i need plato. I've got the bible. The bible has not because plato is has influenced the bible necessarily but like because he was so true then the author of all truth. Christ can't help but have had similarities to what we see in plato.
