Around 428 BC, Plato was born into one of Athens’s most aristocratic families, and ultimately gathered around him some of the greatest minds of his age. Travel back to ancient Greece with Professor Emeritus of Philosophy Donald R. Moor and author Robert M. Pirsig (Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance) to meet this legendary thinker.

In addition to expanding upon his famous allegory of the cave, Plato talks about learning through dialogue, the primacy of good and the price of wrong doing, democracy, freedom and censorship, women’s equality, love, and mathematics, and the search for truth.
