Philosophy of Education reading group – Wednesday 9th May

April 19, 2012

The next meeting of the Different Class Philosophy of Education reading group will take place on the evening of Wednesday 9th May.

We will be looking at Augustine’s Confessions (Books V-VIII).  Tacitly criticising Plato’s conception of education and the need for a master, Augustine develops a very modern conception of the will (and addiction) whose influence can still be seen in today’s self-help and therapy industries.  The centrality of reading in his intellectual and practical struggles marks this out as a key text for thinking about learning.

All welcome.

Venue: The Wheatsheaf, Rathbone Place, London.

Time: 7.30pm
