Event Details

One prominent modern philosopher has said that all of Western philosophy is but a footnote to Plato. The genius of Plato's dialogues is how they raise and clarify deep issues in a conversational format which makes them entirely and brilliantly accessible, without specialized concepts or terminology. Human truth is derived from the common human experience. In this dialogue, the search for beauty and wisdom emerges as a kind of love that shares in the power and resourcefulness of the most burning erotic pursuits. Far from a dry and laborious exposition, the characters come alive with humor and drama.
