Event description

Description

Cosponsored by the Department of Classical Studies and Penn Museum.

Why, especially in times of great social upheaval, should we turn to the ancient past? Because if we fail to understand the experiences of earlier societies, we limit our ability to imagine possible futures, debate courses of action, make wise decisions, and defend hard-won freedoms. Join noted classics scholar Edith Hall as she resurrects Aristotle’s notion of “disciplined recollection” and explains how it can be helpful for meeting the challenges of the present day.

Free and open to the public. Pre-registration requested.
