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 I – The City of All Sciences

This first lecture will be primarily oriented to (i) a basic articulation of the questions and puzzles in the abstract; (ii) explication of the complex norms surrounding technê in sophistic thought, Plato’s early dialogues, and Republic I-II; (iii) some puzzles and problems about the normativity of craft so understood; and (iv) a preliminary sketch of some proposals about the relation of craft to deontological norms and its significance for role ethics.
