WWPD … what would Plato do?
That’s the idea behind "Plato at the Googleplex," by Rebecca Newberger Goldstein.
She argues that philosophy is here to stay – and in fact more relevant today than ever before – by revealing its hidden role in today’s debates on religion, morality, politics, and science.
She does so by imagining Plato has come to life in the twenty-first century, and is embarking on a multi-city speaking tour.
She joined host Alex Cohen to talk about it.
Join Goldstein and Take Two's Alex Cohen for an event, Plato at the Googleplex: Why Philosophy Won't Go Away at Mark Taper Auditorium's Central Library Tuesday at 7:15 p.m.
