The Poetic Principle as a Force of Universal History

In this Rising Tide Foundation lecture, Gerald Therrien addresses the question of morality’s relationship with creative genius and how this uniquely human power allows us to translate discoveries of human nature and the universe into new forms of action and artistry that both elevates our culture while extending the influence of a mortal life infinitely beyond the limits of their existence. Special focus is dedicated to the question of the trans-finite as it was handled by the figures of Plato, St. Augustine, Nicholas of Cusa, and the great Abraham Lincoln (whose relationship to such immortal souls as Robert Burns and William Shakespeare may surprise you.)
