Stoics Leadership Reading Group at Leeds

Good Day philosophers, I would like to announce the next set of reading for our meeting at the IDEA CETL in Leeds on April 29, 2014.

We will be discussing Long & Sedley’s chapter on Stoic Dialectic & Rhetoric (pg 183-190). This is a short reading, but we discovered today that even three or four pages can fuel a couple hours of very interesting conversation. I highly recommend that anyone with access to both volumes of Long & Sedley to take a look at the Greek and Latin, as we found some interesting ideas mixed in with the translation comparisons.

Anyone who missed today, we read the curriculum chapter (158-152) as well as the introduction. The discussion was fueled mostly by our interest on the division of subject matter and the “philosophy” as it was conceptualized by the scholarchs.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have questions regarding the readings, suggestions, or directions to the Centre.

Future dates, times and venue for the reading group are here.
