Bookings are now open for Summer evening classes starting the week of Monday, 12 February 2024.
If you are new to Plato then now is a good time to start. From Monday 12 February, we begin a program of courses through the year designed to develop a rounded introduction to the entire scope of Plato’s writings and ideas. This starts with a wonderfully engaging dialogue in Gorgias: persuasion power and passion. [BOOKINGS CLOSED]
If you are up for a challenge then our other offering for Summer term is to embark on a journey through the entire 10 books of Plato’s Republic [BOOKED OUT]. Ranging across politics, sociology, scientific method and the highest principles of philosophy, Plato’s Republic is always placed amongst the greatest works of our tradition. It will take us two 6-week terms to read and discuss the entire work. Don’t miss Part 1 starting Wednesday 14 February.
If you are planning to take at least a couple of classes this year then it is worthwhile first becoming a member. Membership is also a way to support the academy and to becoming more involved in its activities.
