Reading Plato’s Laws

Enjoy 7 days devoted to the philosophy of Plato, and our own exploration of philosophic enquiry. In the Laws, Plato’s last work, the great teacher of the West turns his attention to the world around him and applies the universal truths of philosophy to the complex particulars of the everyday world.

The purpose of this study event is to consider the challenges facing the world today in the light of the wisdom of Plato’s Laws, and to discover the relevance and urgency of Plato’s last great masterpiece of philosophy and political enquiry: The Laws. The programme will also include the study of Plotinus.

Meetings will be scheduled to provide for multiple time zones and will incorporate a full morning of study and a block of late afternoon/evening study. The program will include meetings conducted by Dr Horan as well as a full programme of guest lectures.

These Plato events are primarily intended for students of the School attending philosophy groups, who are meditating.

Booking deadline: Saturday 24 July 2021.
