Seminar Reading
All participants are asked to read a selection from Plato's classic work Phaedo before attending the Art & Science Seminar for Defining Life and Death. The reading is offered here for free download in PDF format. Also included in the PDF is a brief introduction from our seminar facilitator, Tom Simpson, Ph.D.

While we encourage you to read all of Phaedo, only pages 22-44 of this PDF are required for the seminar discussion.

Click here to download Phaedo.

The text on our website is the classic translation by Benjamin Jowett. For participants who want to own a copy in book form, the same translation is available, bound with other dialogues, in paperback from Prometheus Books, ISBN 0-87975-496-6.
