Aristotle Reading Group

October 10th 7:30
1412 Euterpe St. Advanced

Philosophy Seminar on Plato’s Parmenides. This group will read together
and discuss Plato’s dialogue on Parmenides. We will look at both what this
pre-Socratic philosopher really said and how Plato presents his ideas. This is
an advanced group so some background or serious interest in philosophy is
recommended. We are also suggesting the class buy Peter Kingsley’s “In the Dark
Places of Wisdom” as well as the Dialogue which is free on-line and also very
cheap on Amazon and Abebooks. Questions call David at 473-7194
