You are invited to attend our next monthly meeting to be held on Friday, February 9th from 3:00pm to 4:30pm. We will be discussing “On Reason and Hope: Plato, Pieper, and the Hopeful Structure of Reason” by Ryan M. Brown from the Summer 2023 issue entitled Memory (Volume 50.2).
Here is an excerpt from the Introduction to the issue:
“We can hope that all will be well because that is how reality itself is made.” Ryan M. Brown attends to Socratic recollection (anamnesis) as free of both sophistic presumption and misological despair in “On Reason and Hope: Plato, Pieper, and the Hopeful Structure of Reason.” Rooting his approach in the thought of Josef Pieper, Brown proceeds to interpret key passages from the Platonic dialogues to show how Socrates exemplifies the loving desire to rest in the whole of truth in an openness that confidently awaits this gift from above, and how he thereby remains a model for the Catholic philosopher.
We will meet in the Kateri Room located at St. Michael’s Church, 240 Hemlock Street, Waterloo, Ontario. Use the east side parking lot and enter by the rear doors. Walk up the stairs. The Kateri Room is on your right before you enter the church proper.
