SIX TALKS ON PLATO'S REPUBLIC: MAY TERM SERIES 2021
As every year, our students have the opportunity to attend the course on Plato's most significant work in political science- The Republic. However, this time it is slightly different. To make the course even more interesting, we decided to organize 5 discussions with renowned Plato Scholars. Professors from various parts of the world will deliver lectures about Plato's Republic and share their ideas with our students. Anyone who would be interested can join the discussions that take place every Wednesday at 5 pm on Zoom.
