On Cancel Culture
We would to encourage you to engage with those you disagree with. As the pandemic took its course, the word 'canceled' caught our eyes more and more. Concerts, sports, movies - all have been canceled. But in our time the word 'canceled' has a far more dramatic meaning - we cancel people, not just events. "Cancel Culture removes the comparison needed to enlighten". Let us not eliminate or censor, but improve our own arguments by engaging and wrestling with the ideas we disagree with.

Plutarch - A Priest of Delphi
Plutarch's 'Nine Greek Lives - The Rise and Fall of Athens' is a wonderful opportunity to step into the ancient past, meet different leaders and grasp how much, and how little has changed over time. Born in AD 46, Plutarch is one of the great Greek philosophers and we would love to invite you to learn with us from great minds like Plutarch.
