November classes open for booking

Bookings are now open for Reading Plato in our “Twilight Term” starting Monday, 6 November [BOOKED OUT].

Reading Plato is a rounded introduction to Plato’s way of thinking. It is designed for beginners, but is also suitable for continuing students. Indeed, many of our members have enjoyed coming back to it after taking other courses. And this is why we have decided this time to offer it free to all Academy members. If you want to take up this offer, just let us know by email.

Join now and your membership will carry over to 2024.

(And while on the topic of members, we have an apology for no newsletter this month. While travelling in Greece, Bernie only has his old phone, which will not let him send emails from our members database 🙁

Spring Term bookings now open

For the Spring Term, we are travelling to Greece for a study tour of Platonic sites (3-12 Oct 2023).

Late bookings for this tour will still be accepted at least until the end of August. All are welcome, even those who have never studied with us. And, as we are exiting from Athens (not Melbourne), participants can join us in Athens from anywhere else in the world. [BOOKINGS CLOSED]

For those who can’t make it to Greece, we have The Socratic turn in Plato’s Phaedo: an introduction to classical philosophy [BOOKED OUT]. This entirely new course starting Tuesday 5 September 2023 is a collaboration with ISP taught by Martin Black.
