Recommend this session
The Philosophy Foundation will introduce your students to ancient Greek philosophy.
They get students thinking about what it means to be happy – a subject as relevant today as it was 2,500 years ago.
Starting from an object in the Museum collection, students will engage in lively discussion based on one of the stories in Homer’s Odyssey, and find out what we can still learn from the ancient Greeks.
Maximum group size: 30
Cancellation and no-show charges apply.
