We will study end of Book V and move into Books VI and VII of Plato's Republic for our March meetup.
Note date change: 31 March, not 24 March.
Here is our standard intro:
At our meetings, we will discuss philosophers and their ideas, mostly by reading their works in translation. We are studying texts as entry ways into ideas.
Those who attend should read the text prior to coming to take full advantage of the discussion, especially if they want to participate in the discussion. Reading the text, however, is not a pre requisite for attending.
In our discussions, we take the axioms of a given philosopher (whatever we may determine them to be) as starting points, and will not spend much time critiquing those axioms. In addition, we assume that we may validly read and interpret a text.
Our goal is to be inspired, educated, elevated and deepened by our studies together, and to experience the spiritual delight of studying philosophy in a community of seekers.
Refunds are not offered for this Meetup.
