About the Event

All Stanford students are invited to join Zephyr the afternoon of Friday, May 17th, 2:00–4:00pm for an informal discussion of Plato’s dialogue Euthyphro over afternoon tea, led by Rupert Sparling (PhD Candidate, Philosophy).

If you're so pious, why are you taking your father to court? This question begins Plato's Euthyphro. At this afternoon tea, we're going to try to work out why Socrates is so concerned that Euthyphro is bringing his father to court, and what measures we can take to evaluate the rightness and wrongness of our own radical and controversial actions. Once the final pot of tea is emptied, we may reached have a definite view on whether there could ever be an acceptable and reliable justification for these sorts of actions.

There will be a variety of cakes and tea for the taking at this event. Everyone welcome. The text of Plato's dialogue may be found here.

Inquiries concerning this event should be directed to Landon Hobbs.
