Let's talk about those two beginning with your interaction at Southern Evangelical Seminary with Peter van Inwagen.

Van Inwagen, who is now Professor Emeritus of Philosophy at the University of Notre Dame, and I and J. T. Bridges (who is a Thomist philosopher at SES) participated in this dialogue.
Van Inwagen is a strong Platonist. He believes that there are abstract objects. He gave a very interesting paper on shapes where he argues that there are five Platonic solids or convex Platonic solids. This was discovered by Euclid - you could have just five of these convex objects that would have equal sides to them like a cube or an icosahedron (which has twenty sides) or a pyramid. He was arguing these shapes actually exist - not just the physical objects but these abstract shapes exist. That was his paper.
