Classics academic to appear on BBC Radio 4

Posted on 17/04/2012
BBC Radio 4's In Our Time

Professor Anne Sheppard, from the Department of Classics and Philosophy, will be adding her expertise to a panel discussion on BBC Radio 4’s In Our Time on Thursday (19 April).

In Our Time is a series about the history of ideas discussed by Melvyn Bragg and guests including Philosophy, science, literature, religion and the influence these ideas have on us today.

Thursday’s show will see Melvyn Bragg and his guests discuss Neoplatonism, the school of thought founded in the third century AD by the philosopher Plotinus.

Tune in to Radio 4 at 9am, with the show repeated at 9.30pm, to hear Professor Sheppard discuss Plotinus in the third century AD to Proclus in the fifth century AD and the influence of that philosophy on Christian, Islamic and Jewish philosophers in late antiquity, the Middle Ages and the Renaissance.
