Plato’s Phaedo and the Myth of Theseus and the Minotaur

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED

One of Plato’s most important dialogues is his Phaedo, in which Socrates discusses the immortality of the soul before he drinks the executioner’s cup of hemlock.


Woven into the dialogue are references to the myth of Theseus and the minotaur: does the experience of the soul in its journey through embodied life parallel the adventure of Theseus and his descent into the labyrinth? This talk explores what we can discover when we approach the myth as symbolic of the universal adventure of all human souls.
