Plato Summer School

“Unless… political power and philosophy coincide in the same person…the cities will have no rest from their evils, my dear Glaucon, and neither, in my view, will the human race.” ~ Plato’s Republic, Book V, 473D

Enjoy the opportunity to study together one of the Western World’s greatest classics: Plato’s Republic. The Republic is a foundation text for the people interested in political science, systems of government, psychology, philosophy, as well as the ideal state and the ideal human being – a Philosopher King.

The Plato Week will follow the general outline of previous Plato Weeks: Plenary meetings, study groups, possible electives, free time in the afternoons, some service activities, meditation, as well as meals and special evening activities.

The event is open to all students of the Australia School who have been on a Philosophy Residential previously and are meditating.
