Platonic Summer Symposium

All are invited to participate in the Collegium Institute’s summer Plato reading group at the University of Pennsylvania. This year we are reading The Republic. We will read one book per week through June and July and meet to discuss each reading in an informal setting. The group will meet on Mondays at 6:30 pm, beginning on June 1st. The location will be determined shortly. Participants should read Book I before the first meeting.

The reading group is organized by Donald Antenen, the summer fellow at the Collegium Institute. If you would like to participate, please email
