This third instance of our 12-week intensive will explore and refine the various principles, roles and skills of Dialectic into Dialogos. This dialogue-based practice, derived from the Socratic tradition, turns the art of conversation into a more ancient way of doing philosophy – a living form of disclosure and discovery, and a path for cultivating virtue, insight and a pursuit of the Good. The course will provide extensive training in the different skills of this technique, ongoing instruction and mentorship, creative and relationship-building exercises, regular group practice, and readings from relevant philosophical traditions.
New: Participants from this course will have access to recurring DiD practice sessions on ATM (launching soon) for free, during the course and indefinitely after!
Course leaders: Christopher Mastropietro and Taylor Barratt. John Vervaeke will also be a recurring guest instructor.
