Meetings with Plato in Tenterden Kent

Meetings with Plato in Tenterden, Kent

Plato ran an Academy in Athens dedicated to the love of truth (Philosophy). His dialogues of Socrates’ conversations are peppered with challenges, wit and occasional outrage. If you would like to get acquainted with his work and see how relevant his observations of the human condition are to you and our world, then join like-minded people this Spring. No prior experience required.

How our introductory courses work

A tutor presents philosophical ideas, and leads a discussion based on what arises in the group. Being practical rather than academic, the emphasis is on personal knowledge and experience. Students are encouraged neither to accept nor reject the ideas put forward, but to test them in practice for themselves, in the light of their own experience.
