Corbett lecture with Sarah Broadie

Glaukôpis is so pooped right now that she wonders why she decided to do NaBloPoMo. November is always a busy month (not helped when one comes down with colds)!

Anyway, Glaukôpis attended the Corbett lecture today featuring Sarah Broadie. She spoke about Plato's Timaeus-Critias dialogues and talked about the how they depicted the cosmos, the rational souls, and Atlantis. Quite an interesting lecture, though Glaukôpis confesses she has not read these dialogues in quite some time and is thus not in an especially good place to comment much.

Glaukôpis occasionally regrets not having been a philosophy major also in undergrad, but Glaukôpis really wanted to graduate someday and did not want to be an undergrad for six years. In fact, there are many things Glaukôpis wanted to study in undergrad, so her family is probably glad she managed to restrict it to three majors.
