Date/Time

Oct 18, 2017
05:00 PM until 06:30 PM

Description

 

Why, especially in times of great social upheaval, should we turn to the ancient past? Because if we fail to understand the experiences of earlier societies, we limit our ability to imagine possible futures, debate courses of action, make wise decisions, and defend hard-won freedoms. Join noted classics scholar Edith Hall as she resurrects Aristotle’s notion of “disciplined recollection” and explains how it can be helpful for meeting the challenges of the present day.
