Presentations in Wroclaw 20. Contemporary physics and modern physics in schools and universities Parallel 4 - Wroclaw

I will look at Plato from a point of view of a particle physicist. I find his philosophy surprisingly relevant for the current development in our field, and, vice versa, modern physics offers precious input into deep philosophical questions, in particular about the role and nature of beauty, the quality appreciated in various forms by all people.
