“The School of Statesmanship is unique in that it aims to understand the thinkers we read as they understood themselves. This means, for example, not reading Plato through a Feminist or Marxist lens, but rather aiming to truly grapple with Plato‚Äôs argument and understand its implication for politics and society. ”
