Of signal interest is the impact of Ficino's interpretation of Plato's Republic both on Ignatius de Loyola, who founded his order on the model of the ideal republic, and on what Byrne defines as Cervantes' "fictionalized treatment and perceptive adaptation of the dialogue's concepts of justice and equity." She reminds us that, for Spaniards generally, Ficino, Plato and Hermes Trismegistus were "completely orthodox, and would remain so for centuries." This means that the liberal dimensions of Ficino's work, though venturing at times into the realms of magic, demonology, and the occult, were also accepted either as orthodox or as legitimate accounts of ancient thought.
Interspersed among the book's chapters are several 'interludes' that focus exclusively on either key literary texts that foreshadow what we now call 'virtual reality', including those of Baudelaire, Huysmans, Coover, Ignatius de Loyola, Calvino, and science-fiction author Neal Stephenson, or recent efforts to produce interactive art forms, like the hypertext 'novel' Twelve Blue, by Michael Joyce, and I'm Your Man, an interactive movie.
