20 Cooper Square, 7th Floor
This event poses the question: What is the role of philosophy today in civic life—if it has a role at all? In her new book, "Plato at the Googleplex: Why Philosophy Won’t Go Away", Goldstein examines this eternal question by re-imagining a Plato in public dialogue in a host of contemporary settings.
