Countering violence with Plato and Nietzsche? Decades after the street fighting ended, life in the Ardoyne area of Belfast remains tense. At a Catholic boys’ school, the visionary teaching staff, led by the head Kevin McArevey, hopes that philosophy will allow them to escape a climate of conflict. Inspiring! Anne Thomé
