The Société d’Études Platoniciennes will hold the SEP WORKSHOP 2024 on October 24th and 25th at the Université Jean Moulin Lyon 3. This event, open to the public, is dedicated to the presentation of ongoing research, unpublished, on Plato, before the members of the Société d’Études Platoniciennes.   This year, the Workshop will focus on Plato’s Laws and its enemies.   It will aim at reading Plato’s Laws on its critical and polemical side. What and who do the Laws fight against? The existing Greek laws? The behaviors Plato purports to eradicate through this judicial construction? The contemporary thinkers against whom Plato devises his own moral and political project? To identify Plato’s theoretical, historical, and political enemies in this dialogue, we project to read the Laws in conjunction with its political, ideological, and legal context.   In that perspective, we will have the pleasure of welcoming distinguished scholars including Vincent Azoulay, Cinzia Bearzot, Luc Brisson, Etienne Helmer, Melissa Lane, Arnaud Macé and Pierre Pontier.
