Τι θα κάνετε

This is a ‘real’ Greek Philosophy talk in Delphi, Greece on the pleasant balcony of the Apollon Café with its spectacular views. This informal talk will give a deeper insight into what 'real' Greek philosophy was all about generally; and why to 'Know Yourself' is still so important for us to know something about today.

The talk is for Young Travellers, New Philosophers and Older Searchers and my full title is: 'Know Yourself and Plato’s Book First Alcibiades '

While we may often know what the simple words like 'Know Yourself' literally mean, the deeper intended meanings are often less obvious. What did Socrates mean by “Know Yourself” when he spoke to young Alcibiades – and why was this phrase so important to the ancient Greeks, that they carved it in the stone at Apollo’s temple in Delphi?

Although Socrates discussed this subject with Alcibiades more than 2,400 years ago, he is also suggesting to us all today that unless we know who and what we really are - it will be impossible to make the right life choices for ourselves - and live as happily and wisely as possible.

We will meet from 6.45 pm - and the talk starts at 7.15 pm It lasts about 45 minutes and there will be time afterwards for questions and discussion. (Drinks and snacks available if you wish – but not included in ticket price.)

  • Η ταυτότητα επαληθεύτηκε
These days I live in Delphi and my life revolves around sharing my passion for ‘real’ Greek philosophy with others. By ‘real’ Greek philosophy, I mean that it is mostly concerned with how to live our lives wisely and happily today – rather than just discussing vague intellectual ideas.

Although my philosophy talks are new to AirBnB I have been giving these talks in Athens and Delphi since Autumn 2012.

My introductory philosophy book 'Life Choices' was published in 2013 and a new edition was released in summer 2020; so if you enjoy this talk and want to read a little more on the subjects raised you can do so in your own time.

I have an honours degree in Education, am an experienced speaker and writer on Greek philosophy. I will try to make some difficult and deep subjects easy to understand and enjoyable.
