Description

Seminar 1: Plato, Laws, 709a-d; The Republic, X.614-621 (‘The myth of Er’) 

In its sixth year, the Neoplatonic Studies Seminar will focus on the theme of providence, beginning with readings from Plato and then, after a brief glance at Stoic ideas, as represented by Seneca, moving on to those of Plotinus, Porphyry and Proclus. The seminar is, as it has been from its inception, open to all – to those who have and do not have ancient Greek, to those well-versed in ancient Neoplatonic philosophy and to those who are not. The only requisite is ‘a desire to know’. Each week the seminar studies a short passage or two in English translation (though those who prefer to read the original Greek are not forbidden from doing so).  

If you are not already a participant and would like to be added to the mailing list or wish to receive further information about the seminar, please contact Daniel Samuel (daniel.samuel@postgrad.sas.ac.uk).  

The seminar is organized by Sara Miglietti (Warburg), Tim Addey (Prometheus Trust), Harold Tarrant (University of Newcastle, Australia), Dilwyn Knox (UCL) and Peter Singer.
