SOCRATES PREPARES TO DRINK HEMLOCK
If it is not right, do not do it; if it is not true, do not say it.
Join the Harvard Club of San Antonio Book Club on Tuesday, October 13, at 6:30pm-8:00pm
for a discussion of:
The Apology of Socrates
It is my honor to invite all our Crimson friends to our Fall 2020 Harvard Club of San Antonio Book Club! Channeling the spirit of Harvard President Emeritus Charles W. Eliot (serving 1869-1909), we will be reading and discussing selections from the Harvard Classics. It has long been a hope that careful and cautious study of classical texts can help humanize our conversations while maintaining critical analysis of past and present predicaments.
That said, our Book Club will be studying Stoic readings, including The Apology of Socrates, The Golden Sayings of Epictetus, and Marcus Aurelius. The format of our meetings will follow the Socratic dialogue and begin with an opening question. There are no right or wrong answers, just a dialogue, which, if successful, might generate more questions than answers by the end!
When: On Tuesdays 6:30-8:00 p.m.
- October 13: The Apology of Socrates
- November 10: The Golden Sayings of Epictetus (sayings I-L)
- December 1: Marcus Aurelius (Books I-V)
Where: Harvard Club of San Antonio Zoom Link
I look forward to seeing you all there!
