Expanded Course Description
This course offers the student an introduction to ancient Greek philosophy, with an emphasis placed upon a careful reading of selected primary texts.

The objective of the course is an understanding of the questions and concerns that are addressed within the philosophical works of Plato and Aristotle. Attention is paid to how these ancient philosophical projects still maintain a commanding position within the Western intellectual tradition. We look at two important pre-Socratics, Heraclitus and Parmenides, and consider their relation to later developments. Ancient philosophy is also considered as it responds to a poetic tradition of myth and tragedy. Special emphasis is placed upon the figure of Socrates; and the question is raised that concerns the tragic character of his life and philosophical activity. Students are expected to learn the Greek alphabet.

There is a test dealing with basic philosophical vocabulary in the ancient Greek language.
