Seminarul de Cercetare Interdisciplinara a Religiilor si Ideologiilor

SCIRI Conference / Peter Worley


We invite you to participate at the lecture of Peter Worley (Co-Chief Executive Officer at The Philosophy Foundation)  on Thursday, June 25, 4.00 p.m. (Bucharest time). The topic of his lecture is Corrupting Youth. Philosophy in Schools

A short abstract of his intervention:

Facilitator: So, was Socrates a wise man?

Lennie (age 10): Yes, because he believed in truth and stood up for the truth.

Millie (age 10): Yes and no. Yes because, as Lennie said, he believed in the truth, but no because he got himself killed.

In Athens two and a half thousand years ago, the philosopher Socrates was put on trial by a jury of his peers and charged with ‘corrupting the youths of Athens and believing in gods other than the city-approved gods’ (Apology 24b-c). He defended himself, was nevertheless found guilty, sentenced to death and subsequently executed. This is often paraphrased to mean that he was put to death for inciting the young people of Athens to question, including questioning authority, and that this was frowned upon by certain powerful people. But, as is often the case, there is more to this story.

Join Peter Worley as he discusses philosophy with young people and the links between Ancient Greek conversations and philosophy in the classroom today.”

The meeting will take place on ZOOM, and will be later posted on SCIRI YouTube Channel. In order to participate, please use the following link:
