Plato and the ninety-nine percent | Dan Sportiello | TEDxUWMilwaukee
This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Philosopher Dan Sportiello discusses the relevance of ancient philosophers to our modern day problems. He calls for a revolution in our modern practices–not one of violence, but of ideas.
Daniel John Sportiello is a doctoral candidate in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Notre Dame and graduate fellow of the Notre Dame Institute for Advanced Study. His research explores the relationship between theoretical and practical reason–and the relationship of both to the culture in which they are taught and exercised, especially as that culture has changed through time.
About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
