Perfect for individuals or small groups interested in working through a classic philosophical text. Some texts can be covered in just one meeting, others take longer. We have beautiful and comfortable spaces inside at Osher Lifelong Learning Institute and outside at Red Rock State Park.
Did you ever want to read Plato’s Republic, but when you picked it up you found names like Thrasymachus and Adeimantus, and you promptly put it right back down? We know philosophy can be daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. It’s worth digging in, because in this great work (and so many others) there are insights into human nature, how families and cities should be organized, what role art plays in human experience, and many other important and interesting questions.
From Marcus Aurelius to Merlau-Ponty, we will work through these texts and have delightful, interesting conversations along the way. We’ll give you the historical context and explain technical terms in easily understandable language. We can work with all levels if you already have some experience with philosophy. Not sure what you want to read? Just email us or call. We’re happy to learn more about your interests and would be happy to make recommendations.
Doing philosophy is one of life’s greatest joys and highest arts. We want to help you experience it.
