Conversation Series on Philosophy and Ideas
Date: Friday, June 11, 2021
What ideas of proximity can we find in Classical Greek literature? How was intimacy understood, from Homer to Plato? What is the connection between proximity and friendship? What is the role of supplication? How can these ideas be mobilized to shed light on the notion of proximity today?
This event will take place via Zoom and will be live-streamed on the CHS YouTube channel.
This session is hosted by the Center for Hellenic Studies and is part of the “Philosophy and Ideas” events, organized in collaboration with Harvard’s Committee on Degrees in Social Studies and the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the US. It is a follow-up to the 2020 Night of Philosophy and Ideas at Harvard, as well as the 2021 Night of Ideas.
