4 Shelley seems to have a faith in pluralism and artistic creativity that Plato lacked. Furthermore, self-transcendence for Shelley, unlike Plato, seems to emphasize openness and vulnerability to otherness and differences that are never reducible to identity and the same. Two or more people forming a truly pluralistic community draw out each other’s nature, and together they may create things that have never existed before in heaven or on earth. Lovers create many kinds of children; if the lovers are wise, their creations may be beautiful and good.

Educating individuals to love the good eventually takes us beyond the education of eros. It is not enough passionately to desire possession of the good. We must go beyond the ambivalent, possessive, and frequently destructive sense of love found in eros. Wisdom requires that we learn to bestow value, and not just acquire and consume it, and that calls for creativity. It is here that the wisdom of Dewey and Shelley link artistic and moral action to creative action. It is imaginative possibility, actualized in art, that provides the ideal ends (the goals, the consequences) we desire in action.
