IAP Discussion: Urban Planners Read the Gorgias
Tuesday, January 17, 2023 at 1:00pm to 3:00pm
What is the role of oratory and power in a democratic society? Is it worse to do wrong or to be wronged? What is the difference between knowledge and true belief? Why is it important for both the accused and their judges to meet naked in court? And what do all of these questions have to do with becoming an urban planner...?
Come explore these themes with us in a participatory -- possibly dramatic -- reading of Plato's Gorgias, a Socratic dialog written in 380 BC that is as relevant today as when it was written.
