|25A||Ancient Philosophy||Callard||MTuWTh 10-12||223 Dwinelle|
This is a course in Ancient Philosophy. We will study major works by Plato and Aristotle which introduced the questions philosophers struggle with to this day: What are definitions? What can be defined? What is the difference between knowledge and belief? How do we explain weakness of will? What are the goals of a life well-lived? Are there rules for being moral? Why should we have friends?
