Based on her new book, Enraged: Why Violent Times Need Ancient Greek Myths, Anhalt reveals how three masterworks of classical Greek literature can teach us, as they taught the ancient Greeks, to recognize violent revenge as a marker of illogical thinking and poor leadership. Rage may be a natural reaction to insult, injury, or injustice, but Homer, Euripides, and Sophocles demonstrate the foolishness of celebrating those who indulge in violent rage. These time-honored texts emphasize the costs of our dangerous penchant for glorifying violent rage and those who would indulge in it. By promoting compassion, rational thought, and debate, Greek myths help to arm us against the tyrants we might serve and the tyrants we might become. Copies of Enraged: Why Violent Times Need Ancient Greek Myths will be available for sale.

2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Walking through History: A Tour of the DUMBO neighborhood. The Brooklyn waterfront is a fascinating case of reinvention and rediscovery. Currently one of the hottest real estate markets in a city known for development, during the 19th century, it was where the majority of sugar, spices and coffee came into America. Learn about the enormous brick warehouses which once housed comestibles and now house artist studios and residences. See where the cardboard box was developed and learn about the current struggles to preserve the unique character of the neighborhood as the neighborhood continues to transform into one of NYC's most desirable districts. The tour will be guided by Simeon Bankoff '91, a historic preservation advocate with a long history in the area. It will include a visit to the new Empire Stores complex. After the tour, we will socialize informally at a local wine bar (cash bar). Tour meets on the Fulton Ferry Landing Pier at 1 Water Street, by the Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory Building.
