Plato’s “Allegory of the Cave” stands at the center of what we do here at L’ville. It describes the journey of an individual from the confines and darkness of a cave – a theater of illusion and control – into the clarifying light of the sun.
I picked up a copy of “Why We Argue (and How We Should): A Guide to Political Disagreement” by Scott Aikin and Robert Talisse. Obviously, Lawrenceville has a significant interest in the rules and roles of argumentation.
Through House and Harkness, Lawrenceville challenges a diverse community of promising young people to lead lives of learning, integrity, and high purpose. Our mission is to inspire the best in each to seek the best for all.
