Cambrige Platonists & Metaphysical Poets

Postby Lioba » 05 Mar 2010, 18:48

First I want to say, that this is NOt an attempt to revive the philosophy threads!
So what happened is that I, an elderly, honest married woman fell in love. Here´s a pic of the guy:

He is one of the " metaphysical poets" somehow? related to the "Cambrigde Platonists". All new stuff to me.
[ Isn´t it great? The older we become the more things we find that are still to learn.]
So what I want to ask is if there is a line we can draw from these men to Lewis and the Inklings.

This does also not mean that I´ve become unfaithful to Aristotle. :toothy-grin:
