(And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. - John 1:5)
Every philosophy that scorns the past, writing it off as one long night of stupidity, or, worse, as "socially constructed" and therefore irrelevant to us now, condemns man to live a prey to current social managers and mass education and entertainment. You cannot be a lover of wisdom without a strong memory, Plato says.
Excellent point. Scott Hahn makes some similar points in his lecture series, "Building a Catholic Biblical Worldview," which I've been playing while I'm on the treadmill
