Apologies all for the long delay between posts!

I am now focusing on the production of these videos (which I hope provide a somewhat helpful introduction to the thought of each individual thinker or group of thinkers without watering down the subject matter too much.)

Thanks to all for your support and continued readership (and viewership!).



(P.S this is more an introduction to Plato’s thought than a reflection – you can find my original article on Plato here)
