Lesson 10, Topic 2
- Discuss the danger that Socrates brings up about joining the just and the beautiful together.
- Matthew Post says that as a classical educator, “You don’t actually form the soul, you reorient the soul so it is illuminated by the truth which makes the soul.” Discuss the states of turning the soul. What role does the intellect play in turning the soul? What role does harmony play in turning the soul?
- Matthew Post says, “The way that you foster a certain kind of conduct has to do with the way that the conduct is maintained later in life.” How does this impact the way you view your influence on your students individually and as a class? How might a classical educator maintain their conduct?
- How is education fundamentally premised upon friendship?
