"colloquium"

1:00pm-3:00pm PST

Plato's Clitophon is a largely neglected dialogue. But in it, Plato illustrates why he does not live a Socratic life. Through Clitophon's interaction with Socrates, Plato shows that Socratic protreptic is irresponsible. Plato wishes instead to pursue justice justly.

Those encouraged to submit are:​

  • late-stage Ph.D. students

  • post-grad early career researchers

  • adjunct faculty 

  • independent scholars

  • tenured faculty
