Nor are the reasonings of Schleiermacher, who argues that the Platonic defence is an exact or nearly exact reproduction of the words of Socrates, partly because Plato would not have been guilty of the impiety of altering them, and also because many points of the defence might have been improved and strengthened, at all more conclusive.
The evening's program includes works by Steffen Schleiermacher, Alban Berg and Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy.
The Eternal Covenant: Schleiermacher on God and Natural Science
Los capitulos en los que se divide la exposicion arrancan de los temas teologicos (la Escritura, los escritos confesionales, la vocacion, la cristologia, los sacramentos y la moral cristiana), para continuar despues con una serie de figuras teologicas representativas (Zwinglio, Calvino, Edwards, Schleiermacher y Barth) y terminar con los <<contextos teologicos>>, es decir, con la relacion de la teologia reformada con el puritanismo, la escolastica, la teologia continental e insular europeas, asi como las teologias en Norteamerica, Africa, Asia y Oceania.
A ideia de que a filosofia platonica poderia ser acessada por meio de uma organizacao dos dialogos que revelasse a evolucao no tratamento das questoes surge apenas no seculo XIX, atraves de Schleiermacher.

In Chapter 5 of Occasional Thoughts on Universities in the German Sense (1808) Friedrich Schleiermacher registers the common complaint against the "crudeness" of university customs especially the disorderly mode of life of students--an indictment that critics countered through the use of the term "academic freedom." Schleiermacher was writing before the founding of the University of Berlin in 1809 by the Prussian liberal politician Wilhelm von Humboldt.
