Course Description: This course examines the ideas of pre-Socratic philosophers, Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle. The course focuses on the philosophical innovations of the Ancient Greeks, both in their contributions of radically new ideas and radically new methodologies. Specific questions to be discussed include: What makes philosophy different from mythology? What is knowledge and how is it possible? What is the epistemological value of a definition? What is the nature of the soul and mind? What is virtue and what is its relation to happiness? What is the good life for a human being? Students also condsider the relevance of Ancient Greek philosophical positions to our own lives and our own understanding of the world. In doing so, this course tests the staying power of Plato's and Aristotle‚Äôs thought and, more importantly, puts into action the Socratic sentiment that the unexamined life is not worth living.
