The metaphysical thesis that such Forms as the Good or the Just enjoy an existence independent of human opinions or social arrangements is generally taken to entail the objectivity of certain human values.Conference sessions will explore the metaphysical grounding for these values or for the virtues, method(s) of discovering and explicating the nature of moral values and virtues, and the means of coming to possess or partake in them, as found in Plato's dialogues or in the Platonic tradition.
