The Siracusa Summer Seminar in Ancient Greek Philosophy held on the picturesque island of Ortigia, home of Artemis and Archimedes, will combine Greek language study with academic lectures and presentations, as well as cultural activities, guided tours and cooking sessions, to experience Sicily’s history and traditions.
Plato’s Euthyphro will be this year’s focus. The first Socratic dialogue that most people read, Euthyphro not only introduces us to Plato’s literary and philosophical methods, it opens up the fundamental topic of the relationship among ethics, religion, and society.
Phillip Mitsis of NYU will be Guest Professor of the 2022 Seminar, joining the regular faculty: Prof. George Gazis (Durham), Dr. Chiara Blanco (Edinburgh) and Prof. Heather Reid (Exedra).
The course will run from 18 – 29 July 2022. Places are filling fast – don’t miss this opportunity!
Come prepared for a full immersion into the Mediterranean lifestyle and enjoy the Sicilian Summer!
