PLATO COURSES AND EVENTS
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.
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 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.
We will be reading the second half of Plato’s Gorgias. Don’t worry if you missed the first half. Join us online via Zoom, on Sunday November 14 from 9 am to 3 pm with 1 hour lunch break and two, half hour tea breaks.
