An Introduction to Plato’s Phaedrus
Led by Dr Maeve McKeogh
4 sessions starting Tuesday 7th May 2024
This Zoom course aims to give an introduction to Plato’s Phaedrus, another of his important dialogues, concerning love, the art of rhetoric and the nature of the human soul.
The course is intended for those with little or no knowledge of the Platonic Dialogues. Through reading and discussion of key parts of the text it will provide participants with an overview of the dialogue, and so build a
foundation for later study.
Facilitator: Dr Maeve McKeogh was a medical doctor specialising in hospice care, while at the same time studying philosophy and mysticism for many years. Following early retirement, she undertook a degree in philosophy and theology at Harris Manchester College Oxford.
The course takes place over four successive Tuesday evenings from Tuesday 7th May to Tuesday 28th May (6.00-7.15 pm). A recording can be sent if you have to miss any sessions.
Fee: £20 in total for all 4 sessions (an online text will be provided)
