Join Rachel Barney, Professor and Acting Associate Chair from University of Toronto for an Obert C. Tanner Lecture on The Craft of Virtue and the Virtues of Craft. Rachel Barney is Professor of both Classics and Philosophy. Her research has ranged from the early sophists to the late Neoplatonic commentator Simplicius, but focuses on Plato. This is a three-part lecture spanning three days. 

Lecture II – Dreaming of Jiro

The second lecture will work through the ethical and political proposals articulated at the end of the first lecture with reference to the usually under articulated values we attach in everyday life to various crafts today, ranging from sushi and craft beer to athletic excellence, tech expertise, and Japanese kogei.
