Dr. Matthew Bianco Dec 28, 2020

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.

In autumn of 2006, I unknowingly first walked by a future mentor in a hallway in midtown Manhattan. I was seventeen, and I was touring the liberal arts college that would soon become home for four years. The woman who walked past me was a small, dark-haired European professor, and someday she would become a beloved pedagogical mother to me.  This friendship bloomed right after undergrad, when I became a teacher at her daughters’ school.
