  • Ryan Brown, "Plato’s Use of Mogis (Barely, Scarcely, With Toil)"
    Jun 16, 4:30 PM – 6:00 PM EDT
    via Zoom
    This essay focuses on Socrates's use of the phrase "scarcely able to gaze (mogis kathorosa) upon the things that are" in the Phaedrus's Palionde (248a). I argue that a better translation would be "gets a thorough look at the things that are only with much labor."
