The Descent and the Ascent of the Soul

The second of a series entitled "Three Lectures on the Soul in the Platonic Tradition"


These three linked lectures explore the insights of the philosophers of the Platonic tradition concerning the human soul. This second lecture examines of the origin of the soul as described in the Timaeus and the Phaedrus. We will explore the cycles of life and death which involve both the judgment of the soul and the choices it itself makes and how these cycles sit within the greater cycle of the soul in which it is moved from its innocence, through experience in the material world towards a reversion to the Gods. We will also look at the immortality of the soul, and the transformative effects of remembrance of its true nature.
