"How Many Friends did Plato Have?"

On Monday, February 25 at 4:00 in JR 319, Dr. Kevin O'Neill, Professor of Philosophy at University of Redlands, will be giving a presentation entitled: "How Many Friends did Plato Have?: Rhetoric and Self-Presentation in Classical Athens."

Dr. Kevin O'Neill has expertise in both classical rhetoric and new media. During his talk, Dr. O'Neill will argue that rhetoric developed as a set of strategies for self-presentation in a culture in which love of public honor was a central value. He will also expand on the topic to include some remarks on Plato's rhetorical strategies.

For those that have not seen Kevin O'Neill speak before, this is a great opportunity to see a fabulous rhetorician speak on a fascinating topic. Dr. O'Neill is a fantastic speaker and always makes for an exciting conversation.

I hope that many of you can make it to this event, as it is a very unique opportunity!

Please contact Dr. Irene Clark for more information regarding Dr. O'Neill's presentation.
