St. Athanasius: From where have you come, Matthew?
Matthew: I was at home, reading Plato’s Republic. It’s one of my favorite books, and I am hoping to teach it again soon.
St. Athanasius: Plato’s Republic? That is a good one. What do you like about it?
Matthew: I think Socrates really wrestles through some important questions and has some very revealing insights about human nature.
