Times Higher Ed on Public Impact of My Plato Research

Like many universities today, the University of Manchester encourages its faculty to popularise their research in the mainstream media. The director of the Centre for the History of Science, Technology, and Medicine, Mick Worboys, suggested that a press release be issued about the symbols found in Plato’s dialogues. The University’s Media Relations Department presented this work in simple and even semi-sensationalised language, but even so the response around the world was surprising. There was a debate here in Britain last Autumn about a government plan to push all academics to publicise their work, and there was some interest in my case. The Times Higher Educational Supplement recently published a first-person account of my experiences, and a pdf version may be found here. (Please note: not my choice of title!)
