Educating Philosopher Kings

Matt Bianco November 8, 2018

Presented at:
2018 SCL Annual Conference


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.
