The study of Plato has been an integral part of the School of Philosophy since the earliest days of the school. In Plato’s dialogues philosophy becomes alive and dramatic.

These talks draw on the wisdom of Plato as illustrated by Plato when addressing the great issues which faced mankind two thousand years ago and which still face us today.
