After a Masters in Ancient Philosophy and a teaching qualification in Classics, Chris taught Greek and Latin in secondary schools and Comparative Literature at university. For several years, he also edited classical texts for Garnier-Flammarion Publishing Company, which eventually led him to a question he has always had in his mind: what is knowledge; how should we transmit it?

In addition to these professional experiences, Chris has been a constant reader of Plato since his early adulthood, and has just submitted a PhD thesis on Plato at the University of Cambridge. His dissertation explored the original models of knowledge, learning and teaching displayed by Plato in one of his dialogues — the Symposium. He managed thereby to build a bridge between the two main topics he had been exploring separately thus far: Plato and education.

Chris is currently teaching Philosophy and Ancient Greek language in the departments of Philosophy and Classics at Cambridge.
