EP388 - Ancient Philosophy

The ancient Greek philosophers gave Western culture its central ideas about humanity, science, ethics, and politics. You will examine the exciting theories about human nature and the nature of reality that set philosophy on its thoughtful way, including the works of such luminaries as Heraclitus, Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, the Stoics, Epicurus, and the Early Christian philosophers who sought to develop a rational framework for their faith. You will also examine some current scholarship on these philosophers, with an eye toward learning how and to what extent philosophy has changed, and how it is done today.
