PHIL 102. Ancient Philosophy


For the Greeks and Romans, philosophy was a way of life and not merely an academic discipline. With this perspective in mind, we will examine topics in ethics, metaphysics, aesthetics, epistemology, and theology through close readings of Plato’s Republic and Aristotle’s Nichomachean Ethics. We will also look more briefly at the thought of the Presocratics and the Stoics.
