A Public Lecture by Georgina White (CEMS Post-doctoral Fellow) on "Reading Plato in the East and West: Comparing Histories of Reception," January 1, 5.30pm, Gellner Room, CEU

January 30, 2017

With the exception of archaeological evidence and a few papyrus finds, the study of the ancient world is the study of its reception – the copies, epitomies, and commentaries of earlier works produced by later scholars. The study of Plato is no different. Our understanding of both the texts themselves and their interpretation relies heavily upon their reception in later periods, and, in particular, the manuscript and exegetical traditions of the Middle Ages.
