Plato's "Euthydemus" is considered an important precursor to Stoicism, so we will spend this upcoming meeting discussing why that's the case. The preferred translation is by Rosamund Sprague; a good public domain version can be found at Tuft University’s “Perseus Digital Library“.
PLEASE CONTACT ME IF YOU NEED A PDF OF THE READING
Note about next reading: As early as August, we will begin discussing Cynthia King's translation of Musonius Rufus: Lectures and Sayings. Please take the time to order a print or digital version of this text if you would like to join us.

These regular meetings tend to proceed as follows...
1. The facilitator makes any administrative announcements there may be
2. Attendees share experiences with implementing any Stoic exercises/techniques
3. Attendees share insights gleaned from any ‘outside reading’
4. The main discussion proceeds until the end of the session
In terms of preparing for the main discussion, you may...
1. select a passage or two to share and discuss;
2. think of questions to propose (or answer) and/or
3. email me in advance (lastoics[at]gmail[dot]com) if you would like to ensure we cover something that you find particularly meaningful.
See you then!
