The Republic of Plato - Intensive

Agora Foundation Online Intensive - The Republic of Plato

What is justice? 

That is the question that Socrates, within Plato's most famous dialogue, will explore with each of his interlocutors. Within this small group, we will carefully work though this text, investigating the issues of epistemology, political theory, the human soul, form and content, poetry, and more. We invite you to join us for ten Tuesday afternoon sessions, beginning May 4 and concluding July 6. If you were only going to read one Platonic dialogue in your educational career, this is the text to choose. Truly, no rounded liberal arts education is complete without it, and this book's influence on Western Civilization cannot be overstated. 

 

These ten online seminars will take place on Tuesday afternoons, 12:00-1:30PM Pacific Time. All reading materials (in English translation) will be supplied and sessions will be facilitated by tutors experienced is shared inquiry and the Socratic method. Groups will be limited to 12 participants and no prior knowledge is required. Teachers will be offered 3 CEU credits for participation.
