Details

The Political Ideas & Ideologies Series invites you to discover what kinds of dangerous ideas and actions could get a person killed in Ancient Greece and Rome. Looking at figures like Socrates, Antigone, Julius Caesar, and too many Christian martyrs to name, we'll be exploring how being a philosopher, a gender nonconformist, a tyrant, or a true believer can be a dangerous thing. And we'll investigate how thinking about what it meant to be a dangerous radical in antiquity can help us better understand our perceptions of and responses to dangerous ideas today. Refreshments provided.

There will be four sessions:

Be a Philosopher! - Thursday, March 8, 12:30-2 pm
