Once, when Socrates and a friend had failed to resolve the philosophical questions that they had been puzzling over all day, he ended their conversation with the words, “But tomorrow morning let us meet here again.” Plebity’s Agora aims to be a part of this tradition of patient but doggedly determined truth-seeking. Through dialogue with each other, their audience, and their guests, Sophie and Niloo do some puzzling of their own – as they try to get to grips with some of the ideas and themes which dominate 21st century political life.
