There is an "odd" remark about Philo in the Plato-chapter. To my knowledge, a source for "Plato reborn" hasn't be found in litterature available to Steiner. Is this a remark Steiner made out of his own source? Why would he put in this "by the way" so to say?
"Philo of whom it was said that he was Plato reborn, called the wisdom born of man, the “Son of God;” (see note 46) this wisdom lives in the soul and contains the intelligence that exists in the world."
*******It's probably a quote from one of the Neo-Platonists in later centuries, like Plotinus , Porphyry, or Iamblichus.
