Literary Tales: Plato and Philosophy

In the inaugural lecture of the “Philosophy Hour” at Literary Tales, we begin with the very source of systematic philosophy: Plato. In this half hour lecture we provide the tools for understanding Plato as a political thinker, ethicist, satirist, and architect of foreshadowing. This lecture introduces the reader/listener to how to extract the richness from Plato primarily by drawing these themes out of the Republic and Symposium. I also have a book on Plato’s politics: The Politics of Plato: A Beginner’s Guide.
