Reading Plato’s Timaeus

Enjoy 7 days devoted to the philosophy of Plato, and our own exploration of philosophic enquiry.

The purpose of this study event is to consider the challenges facing the world today in the light of the wisdom of Plato’s Timaeus, and to discover the relevance and urgency of Plato’s work. The programme will also include the study of Plotinus.

Online 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. Those attending the residential should have attended at least one previous residential event with the school.
