NSO Preceptorial 2018

Date & Time

08/25/18 | 1:30 – 3:00pm

Preceptorial Description

Imagine if, after a sabbatical of some 2400 years, Socrates reawakened as your academic advisor: what wisdom might he have about how to go about getting an “education” here at Penn? In this preceptorial we will reflect together on some of Plato’s writings on the conditions and ends of learning. Whether these issues have long bothered you or you’ve never considered them before, please join us for a convivial first seminar with Collegium at Penn. No prior reading. All brief excerpts to be handed out and discussed in session.

Leaders

Dr. Ralph Rosen | Vartan Gregorian Professor of Humanities and Undergraduate Chair in the Department of Classical Studies

Dr. Daniel Cheely | Director of Collegium Institute and Perry Family Scholar of History, Religion, and Culture at the University of Pennsylvania
