Jill Frank Book Talk

November 7 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

(Olin Library – Room 107): Jill Frank, a Government Department professor at Cornell, will discuss her new book, Poetic Justice: Rereading Plato’s Republic. Focusing on the philosopher Plato’s works as written texts, Frank challenges the traditional interpretation that Plato wants a top-down dissemination of knowledge, suggesting instead that he wants citizen-readers to challenge all claims to authority, even by philosophers. FREE. 4:30 pm. Chris Jensen is taking Cascadilla students
