This week in Wichita, it’s Plato

This week (Friday January 25, 2013) the Wichita Pachyderm Club is pleased to feature Plato (24/423 BCE — 348/347 BCE), the Classical Greek philosopher, mathematician, student of Socrates, writer of philosophical dialogues, and founder of the Academy in Athens, the first institution of higher learning in the Western world.

Plato’s topic is “The Masses are A**es: The Case Against Democracy.” He will appear through the miracle of modern technological drama. Really, though, I think his name is Mel.

The public is welcome and encouraged to attend Wichita Pachyderm Club meetings. Meetings are held almost every Friday in the Wichita Petroleum Club on the top floor of the Bank of America Building at 100 N. Broadway. The program starts at noon, and it is suggested that guests arrive by 11:45 am in order to get their lunch before the program starts. The meeting costs $10, which includes a delicious buffet lunch and beverage. For more information click on Wichita Pachyderm Club.
