Building on the work of previous terms during Joseph and David will begin this term with a recapitulation of the ground covered there before moving on to explore the ideas contained in Plato’s Laws. David Triggs will do likewise in relation to highlighting what Henry George had to say about Natural Law as the basis for man-made laws. Arthur Farndell will draw on his work in translating the commentary on ‘The Laws of Plato’ that Marsilio Ficino prepared for Lorenzo de’Medici, who, as ruler of the Republic of Florence, sought to draw on the wisdom of Plato in his handling of the affairs of state.
