Convert to MP3 for your device with YouTube MP3jam
In this lecture from my Spring 2013 Introduction to Philosophy class at Marist College, we begin our study of Plato's classic dialogue, the Phaedo. After discussing the context, structure, and characters of the dialogue, we discuss some of the central topics: philosophy as preparation for death, the relationship between the soul and body, the doctrine of recollection, and the doctrine of forms. We defer examining the arguments for and against the immortality of the soul until the next class session
