A series of workshop for twenty New Jersey teachers and administrators to explore the meaning of the human experience through reading and discussion of ancient Greek literature and history.

"The Examined Life" is an educational program that aims to strengthen the humanities curriculum in the southern New Jersey schools through Hellenic studies seminars, workshops, and ongoing discussions of ways to integrate knowledge and teaching. The overarching theme is the Socratic call to Know Thyself (gnothi s'auton). Asking participants to explore what it means to be human through the lens of Greek antiquity, the "Examined Life" program taps into the great reservoir of Greek thought and culture and its power to transform student minds.
