Plato Summer School

This year, Plato’s Phaedo will be studied at the Australian Plato Summer School.  

Socrates, in prison and about to be executed, is surrounded by friends not easily convinced by the first thing they hear. 'O my judges' he says to them, 'I desire to prove to you that the real philosopher has reason to be of good cheer when he is about to die.'  Will we be of good cheer when about to die?

The residential will be chaired by the internationally acclaimed scholar and translator, Dr David Horan.

The Plato Summer School is open to all members of the School worldwide.  The only requirements for attendance are that one mediates and has been on a previous residential week.
