Summer 2006 Session D
|25A||Ancient Philosophy||Barnes||MTuWTh 12-2||151 Barrows|
Ancient Greek philosophy unearthed an enormous number of enduring philosophical problems. In this class we will look at some of those problems in their original context, with an eye to understanding not only what the problems are, and why they arose, but also why many of them persist. To the extent possible, the class will be a philosophy class with ancient textbooks, rather than a class on the history of philosophy.
