Moevs argues that self-knowledge is in truth the keystone of the Aristotelian and Neoplatonic philosophical culture, and the essence of the Christian revelation during which that culture culminates. Armed with this new figuring out, Moevs is ready to make clear a chain of perennial concerns within the interpretation of the Comedy . particularly, it turns into transparent that poetry coincides with theology and philosophy within the poem: Dante poeta can't be special from Dante theologus .
