I have been familiarizing myself with the philosophy of Plato, and how Augustine has interpreted Platonism into Christian theology.
The main point being that the world of forms exist within the mind of God, and that upon our birth, we are instilled with knowledge patterned off the forms that exist within the mind of God. Since we are instilled with the knowledge of the forms at birth, it is a priori knowledge.
However, upon further reading, I noticed on author mention that his could be a form of ontologism.
I’m not quite sure what ontologism is, (I read the entry on New Advent and it didn’t clarify it for me), and I’m not sure how it relates, or if it even does, to the idea of above.
Was Augustine in heresy here?
