Plotinus
Term 2 2021

Plotinus is the greatest and most famous of the Neoplatonic philosophers.  Born in Egypt and educated in Alexandria, Plotinus moved to Rome where a circle of dedicated students formed around him and persuaded him to write.

Plato’s Parmenides
Term 2 2021

Socrates is presented as a young man, below the age of 20, keen on Philosophy, bold, yet untrained.  He puts forward “The Theory of Forms”, but when he is pressed by Parmenides, he is at a loss to defend his position.

The Study of Plato

The Study of Plato classes will continue online this term. We will be continuing with our study of Plato’s Gorgias, but new students are welcome. During the term we will begin a new Dialogue of Plato, yet to be selected.

The Laws are Plato’s final work, rarely read, but providing clarity and insight into the principles that govern societies, offering a path to happiness, freedom and prosperity, individually and collectively. Meditating students only.
