Taped by WGBH Forum Network, philosopher Rebecca Newberger Goldstein visited Harvard Book Store to talk about her book, Plato at the Googleplex: Why Philosophy Won't Go Away.

Goldstein imagines how Plato might react to the 21st century, complete with a trip to Google headquarters in California and a trip through the world wide web with a chrome book.  Drawing upon Plato's original dialogues, Goldstein explains what else Plato might think about the way we now live our lives.

This talk took place on March 12, 2014 at 7:00 p.m.
