The name of Plato and Socrates are linked not only to one another but to the classical tradition. In this episode, we explore how virtue is awakened in the soul while comparing and contrasting the primary source (The Great Tradition) and the references (Norms and Nobility).
Welcome to Season 3 of The Classical Homeschool Podcast. At the Classical Homeschool Podcast, our heart is to take on the work of wrestling through the, sometimes difficult and philosophical, ideas presented throughout the classical education movement and bring them down to earth, specifically and practically for the classical homeschooling mom. This season we are cross referencing Norms and Nobility (by David Hicks) with The Great Tradition (by Richard Gamble). Hopefully, this journey will be fruitful in understanding the references made by Hicks bringing all of us deeper into the Classical Tradition.
