The Phi Beta Kappa Association of Boston invites you to learn about or reacquaint yourselves with the Socratic Method of Discussion as seen in Plato's works, then as adopted by Ward Farnsworth in his book "The Socratic Method: A Practitioner's Handbook." There will be a lecture followed by ample time for small groups to practice the Socratic Method of Discussion, led by members of PBK Boston. Short readings from Plato, Farnsworth, and other authors will be sent to registered guests before the event. The event will end with time for guests to socialize over drinks and light fare. Members and friends of PBK and the public are welcome to attend.
 
This event is hosted in conjunction with The Phi Beta Kappa Society's annual Key Connections program. Key Connections offers a great opportunity for PBK members to familiarize themselves with their local association and to network with other PBK members. Registration ends October 20 and is limited to 50 participants.
Those registered will be given access to the readings as of October 15th. You may register at the following link: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/pbk-boston-key-connections-socrates-pre-texting-tickets-435734994097?aff=ebdssbeac.
