What we are learning

Dates: 26 Sept - 05 Dec (half term 31 Oct)
Where: 11 Mandeville Place, W1U 3AJ

Socrates and Philebus want to know what is the good and natural disposition of the soul which makes all men and women happy? One answer is “enjoyment and pleasure and delight”, while Socrates says: “wisdom and intelligence and memory, and their kindred, right opinion and true reasoning, are better and more desirable than pleasure for all who are able to partake of them…they are the most advantageous of all things” What is the greatest pleasure and contentment in your life? What type of activity brings complete fulfilment and the resolution of difficulties?
