Plato Summer School

The nature of justice pervades every aspect of our being.  To be truly just is to be a truly whole human being.  At this week-long Australian Plato Summer School, Books I and II of Plato’s Republic will be studied, in the 'manner of Socrates'.  By fully engaging with the text, and adopting a dialectic approach, we will look to discover the true nature of justice, how it applies to the state and to the individual, and how we may nurture it within ourselves and our society.

We will also spend time engaging with the work of Plotinus, and enjoying stimulating evening lectures and entertainment, excellent company, good food, and space for afternoon relaxation.

The Plato Summer School is open to all members of the School worldwide.  The only requirements for attendance are that one meditates and has been on a previous residential week.
