PHL 2200(W) - History of Ancient Philosophy

Credits: 4
From the beginnings of their literature, the ancient Greeks displayed a steady concern and even preoccupation with what human beings may know and what may lie concealed from our knowing. This course will provide a survey of Greek philosophical thought organized around the theme of the problem of human knowledge, beginning with the Presocratics, then turning to dialogues by Plato and Aristotle’s comprehensive approach to nature and human knowledge, and concluding with the Stoics, Epicureans, and Sceptics.
Prerequisite(s): PHL 1000 .
