Do you wonder who Socrates was and why he is still so famous today? If you are curious to find out come along to this relaxed and informal Greek philosophy talk while you are here in Delphi. By the end of the talk you will have a good idea who Socrates and Plato were, and what ‘real’ Greek philosophy was really all about.

James also explains in a simple and clear way some of the important ideas from ancient Greece – such as 'Know Yourself' which was one part of the important Delphi Message (Maxims) carved at the entrance to Apollo’s temple here in Delphi. He will explain why understanding some of these ideas is still very important today for living happier and more fulfilling lives.

The intentionally small groups for the talk (maximum of 12 people) allows people to feel comfortable asking questions and discussing further some of the points raised. (Talks for larger groups can be given by arrangement.)

The talks are for young travellers, new philosophers, and older searchers.

Itinerary

This is an informal talk, given on the pleasant terrace of the Apollon Café in Delphi with its spectacular views.

This talk is ideal to get a deeper insight into what Greek philosophy was really all about and why the phrase ‘Know Yourself’ was so important to the ancient Greeks that they carved it at the temple here in Delphi as part of the Delphi Message (Maxim). The talk also explains why this phrase is so important for us to know ‘something’ about today.

My talk is for Young Travellers, New Philosophers and Older Searchers and the full title is: ‘Know Yourself and Plato’s Book First Alcibiades’. In this book Socrates explains to young Alcibiades why Know Yourself is so important. Although he discussed this subject with Alcibiades more than 2,400 years ago, he is also suggesting to us all today that unless we know who we really are - it will be impossible to make the best Life Choices for ourselves - and live as happily and wisely as possible. My talk also introduces ‘real’ Greek philosophy generally, and will tell you a little about Socrates and Plato.

It lasts about 45 - 50 minutes and there is time afterwards for discussion, and for any questions you may have.
