This chapter examines the view of Plato on the relation of the Good and Beings to true religion. It mentions Plato's thesis that pleasure rivets the soul to the body and that the philosopher is therefore always dying. The receptacle is the place of God's trace, the place where he manifests that which suited his Goodness. Plato would have us believe that avatars of the receptacle can partake of the Good and thus of reason.

Keywords: Plato; the Good; Being; true religion; God; philosophy and religion
