Hypatia inspired with the beauty of her mind as much as with the beauty of her character. This extraordinary woman was a renowned philosopher, the leader of the Neoplatonic school of philosophy, recognised mathematician and highly talented astronomer.
She lived in the city of Alexandria, a dream made reality, with its living example of universal values like tolerance and solidarity. Faced with the collapse of this society, she remained loyal to the ideal of a better future for all, irrespective of any differences.
This talk will explore what we can learn from her wisdom and legacy for our times.
