GREK 013. Introduction to Plato’s Republic


The main focus will be on reading Book I of the Republic in Greek, giving sustained attention Greek grammar and vocabulary. We will also read the rest of the Republic in English, and consider select problems of interpretation, such as the role of Plato’s “guardians,” the place of poetry, and Plato’s purpose in exploring an “ideal state.” The course is intended for students who have completed a first year of classical Greek, or the equivalent in High School or summer courses.
