Wednesday -Go over Thucydides, focusing on Pericles funeral speech and debate --Go over Republic with a supplement, pay special attention to: notion of justice (who says what), desire, how law keeps us in line, guardians, parts of the soul and how they reflect society, the cave --Read over all quotes talked about in class, focusing on who said then and what they mean Thursday -Go over three stages of Greek civilization -Go over Antigone -Go over Illiad with supplement “We are lovers of nobility with restraint.” Said by Pericles. In this instance, the nobility of an Athenian’s character is mitigated by self-control, as nobility without control always leads to violence. Being a lover of wisdom in this instance means that the Athenians found value in philosophizing, but not to the point where they let in interfere with their ability to fight. Consequences of the plague: -first, loss of burial rights. This indicates an excess of bodies rather than a change in morality
