“Unless… political power and philosophy coincide in the same person…the cities will have no rest from their evils, my dear Glaucon, and neither, in my view, will the human race.” ~ Plato’s Republic, Book V, 473D

Enjoy the opportunity to study together one of the Western World’s greatest classics: Plato’s Republic. The Republic is a foundation text for the people interested in political science, systems of government, psychology, philosophy, as well as the ideal state and the ideal human being – a Philosopher King.

The Plato Week will follow the general outline of previous Plato Weeks: plenary meetings, study groups, possible electives, free time in the afternoons, some service activities, meditation, as well as meals and special evening activities.

Registration required by 15 December 2018
