In this seminar, students will be offered the opportunity to acquaint themselves with the most significant texts of Plato.After two lessons of general presentation of Plato (methodology, Plato’s life, his works, his main philosophical ideas), each student will choose one of the texts and prepare a 30 minutes presentation. This presentation should contain an introduction to the text, identifying its place in the works of Plato, its main themes, an outline and references to similar discussion in other dialogues. The conclusion of this presentation should prepare a discussion among the students enrolled for this seminar. A 15 page paper, on one of the theme of the presentation, due on the last session of seminar, will contribute to 50 % of the grade for the seminar. An electronic document containing the texts will be sent to the students.
