Online Seminars

Online seminars, provided by the Lyceum Institute four times per year–Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall–offer small groups (8-20 people) the opportunity to engage with a topic, written work, or individual thinker from the history of philosophy under the guidance of a PhD.  Each seminar lasts 8 weeks and includes:

  • Reading selections for each week;
  • A persistent collaborative chat client (Microsoft Teams) accessible by PC or phone app (Android and iPhone);
  • Many resources: articles, books, links, etc., to help deepen understanding of the topic;
  • A 20-40 minute lecture recording distributed at the beginning of each week;
  • A 45 minute discussion session where all participants may ask questions, give their interpretations, and collaboratively strive to understand the topic, conducted via Microsoft Teams video-conference.
Sample seminar lecture – Ethics: Virtue

All seminars will be conducted through the Lyceum Institute, utilizing Microsoft Teams, where participants are encouraged to engage in regular discussion about the topic, and through which all files (provided readings, lecture recordings, notes, etc.) will be distributed.  One may sign up for a seminar without having enrolled in the Lyceum Institute, though the benefits to having done so are considerable.
