Anthony O’Hear (in The Great Books, 2) notes:

“. . . the Plato studied by philosophers of today is a Plato who is almost a colleague or contemporary of ours, with our mentality. The fact that all his thought is framed in a mystical myth of the transmigration of souls between this world and another more perfect world, more real than ours, to which we aspire whether we recognize it or not, is typically overlooked as too embarrassing even to notice, let alone to take seriously.”
