The True Spirit of Enquiry

By David Horan

'The True Spirit of Enquiry - The True Spirit of Socrates'.  To discover what is true and good, we need a spirit of enquiry, a willingness to live truthfully, and the guidance of wise men and women whose lives exemplify the love of truth.

This lecture is for those willing to challenge their own established ideas and to dare to discover the unifying principles that underpin human existence.

The lecture will be followed by time for questions and the evening will conclude with a glass of wine in the Erasmus Primary School grounds.

Dr David Horan is a senior member of the Dublin School of Philosophy.  He lectures and conducts study programs worldwide,  He is currently midway through a 10 year project translating into English the complete Dialogues of Plato.
