Public Republic

Public Republic

Student sits in lawnchair reading

October 1, 2021 | 8 a.m. - 6 p.m. | Minerva Statue

Join the Department of Philosophy for a socially distanced reading of the entirety of Plato’s “Republic.”

This event will take place on College Ave. by the Minerva statue near the Elliott University Center (EUC) from 8 a.m. – 6 p.m.

As “Republic” is written in a dramatic, dialogical format, and represents a day-long discussion amongst (mostly) friends, we will be bringing this dialogue to life in our performance.  

We welcome anyone who would like to drop by, even for just a short while, to join us. 

Why Republic?  Why read it publicly?  Why the whole thing?
