Furor Divinus: Creativity in Plato’s Ion

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


The aim of this paper is to use the way creativity is understood within the argumentation of Plato’s Ion to open up the possibility that Plato allows for a conception of a produced object - work of art - that can be judged even though its production is not regulated in advance by the ‘idea’ or the ‘paradigm’. Central to the development of this position is Ficino’s commentary on the Ion.
