International Plato expert visits Melbourne to deliver this interactive lecture. To discover what is true and good, we need a spirit of enquiry, a willingness to live truthfully, and the guidance of wise men and women whose lives exemplify the love of truth.

This lecture is for those willing to challenge their own established ideas and to dare to discover the unifying principles that underpin human existence. The lecture will be followed by time for questions, and the evening will conclude with a glass of wine in the Erasmus Primary School grounds.

Presenter David Horan is a senior member of the Dublin School of Philosophy and in conjunction with Irish universities he has organized the public “Day With Plato” event since 1987, introducing thousands to the works of Plato.

He has produced film versions of three of Plato’s dialogues and live dramatisations of numerous others. David has run Plato Study Weeks since 2004 in Ireland, Italy and Melbourne and has lectured extensively on the dialogues in England, Holland, New York and Johannesburg.

He has been conducting group tours to Greece since 1996, combining the study of Plato with visits to the sites of the ancient world. He has led three 2 week seminars on various dialogues in Delphi, Greece. He is currently producing a new translation of the Complete Dialogues of Plato. This work is being undertaken at the Centre for the Study of the Platonic Tradition in Trinity College, Dublin.
