Sungrammata is publishing platform for articles that apply philosophy and critical thinking to a variety of subjects, such as literature, politics, the arts and history.
“Sungrammata” is an Ancient Greek term that means “written compositions”. It was used most notably by Plato in his work The Phaedrus, where he argues that speech is preferable to writing. Writing, unlike speech, cannot respond to the reader’s questions. And yet, without writing, so much would be lost to us. The written composition is the basis of our knowledge of history, philosophy, and science. Most of what we know about Plato is due to inscriptions made long ago.
Sungrammata was founded in Melbourne in 2013 by Simon Bonneau, a writer and perpetual student of philosophy.
