"To Ficino, however, philosophy was much more than an intellectual exercise. As a canon of Florence Cathedral, he recognised the spiritual significance of Plato's dialogues, of which Parmenides is perhaps the most profound, dealing as it does with the ultimate reality and how the individual soul may ascend to the presence of the eternal One." "The reader is invited to join the translator in ascending from the plains of everyday living, up through the hills of ever loftier considerations, rising to the majestic peaks of Ideas, transcending being itself, and eventually entering into the presence of the One."--Jacket."
