Plato in China

Stephen Halliwell gave the keynote address this week at the first conference of its kind ever to be held in China. The International Symposium on Plato’s Poetics organised by the Institute for Transcultural Studies at Beijing International Studies University brought together Plato specialists from several countries alongside Chinese scholars and postgraduate students undertaking comparative work on the philosophical traditions of East and West. It is hoped that the event will help boost a growing Chinese academic interest in the study of Classics in general.
