Classical Civilisation/Philosophy: Beliefs & Ideas – What Is Love? University Tutorial With Dr Maria Serban From University of East Anglia

20th June 2022 @ 16:15 - 17:00



In this live interactive Classical Civilisation/Philosophy tutorial, we will be joined by Dr Maria Serban, Lecturer in Philosophy, School of Politics, Philosophy, Language and Communication Studies at UEA, who will explore Beliefs & Ideas: Love & Relationships.

Maria will lead a philosophical exploration of Love by considering two ancient Greek myths: Aristophane’s idea about soulmates and the story of Eros and Anteros.

The full context/introduction to this live and interactive discussion is provided by the university in a Headliner recorded resource (below) which offers key insights into the debate. This recording can be watched as a class activity or independently in preparation for the discussion.

The session aims to deepen students’ understanding of the topic whilst enabling them to access and experience a live online university tutorial.
