Philosophia Perennis Seminar

The Saint Anthony of Padua Institute's philosophy seminar reads, in fine translations into English, the greatest works of philosophy in our tradition and convenes to discuss these works, presently Plato and Aristotle. They are our teachers and fellow interlocutors. Occasionally we intersperse our readings with some of the best commentators on these sources -scholars like Jacob Klein, Josef Pieper, and Julian Marias - because they help open up the deep texts to our reading and thus assist us in becoming better readers and discussants. But always, the goal is to wrestle directly with these great works, as free from distortions and mediations as is possible, to try and recapture the meaning intended by the great authors on perennial and universal questions.
