Matt Bianco examines Plato's curriculum for a philosopher king and looks at how this can influence how we love God with our minds.

In Plato’s Republic, Socrates sets forth the curriculum
for educating children to be future philosopher kings, the kind of people who can know truth, control their passions and lead others to truth. Join us to walk through the curriculum, consider its strengths and weaknesses, and consider how it might be implemented in our lives and in our classrooms. We’ll discover how we can learn — even from an ancient Greek philosopher – how to worship God and love Him with all of our minds.
