Course Description and Goals The course will cover the philosophers of the ancient Greek and Latin worlds with special emphasis placed on the Presocratic Philosophers, Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, and on contemporary feminist discussions of ancient philosophy. We will relate the ancient discussions to current events in politics, cultural life, and the science. Typical class sessions will involve lecture and small group discussion. Occasionally I will show part of a video for cultural/historical background. Student Learning Objectives
