New stuff at the Idler

The new Idler magazine is launched today. I’ve a piece on Socrates and his unexpected relationship with the priestess Diotima. Plato says she was key to his life. You’ll hardly hear her discussed by philosophers today.

Starting next month, I’ll be leading two classes at Pedlars, one of the new venues for The Idler Academy – first on psychotherapy, then on ancient philosophy. Do consider signing up.
