“Life has never been normal,” wrote C. S. Lewis in an address to students at the outset of World War II. If we are waiting for a better time to pursue truth, goodness, and beauty, we may never get started. In the Young Philosophers series, Gutenberg College opens its (virtual) doors to high-school-age participants for thoughtful online discussion of important ideas.
Virtue is a central concept in ethics, or moral philosophy. In this session of Young Philosophers, we will explore the classical Greek notion of virtue as presented in Plato’s dialogue Meno. We will also compare this notion of virtue with the Hebrew notion of wisdom as presented in 1 Kings.
