Intellectual historians and philosophers met in London in September 2004 to share insights into the work of Platonic philosopher Ficino (1433-99), and its substantial influence in several fields of thought through the 15th and 16th centuries. They include discussions of Ficino and the god of the Platonists, aspects of praise in his writing, astrology in his Epistolae, his hymns and the Renaissance Platonic Academy, Castiglione counter-currents in Renaissance Italy, John Dee's annotations to Ficino's translation of Plato, Fortunio Liceti's criticism of his ideas on the origin of life, and Ficino's influence on Henry More's argument for the soul's immortality.
