AH1. Some questions for major readings Week 1. William A.P. Childs, “The Classic as Realism in Greek Art” What does William Childs have to say about this ‘naturalism’ vs. ‘idealism’ in his article? [What is Child’s main argument/thesis?] *Thesis : (p. 6), Childs wants to argue against the longstanding assumption that the classical style is defined solely by idealism. Instead, he proposes that this idealism is “only a secondary aspect of the classical style” and that realism is the primary aspect. *The high classical period not only most idealized , but also most naturalistic (these 2 terms are not antithetical as earlier scholars had argued). How does he use the Doryphoros to illustrate this idea? * p. 9: The Doryphoros shows an observable knowledge of human anatomy (muscles are represented at rest on one side of the body and flexed on the other. Near-scientific accuracy. *“…a precise, objective, and even scientific realism that is laid over the traditional idealized form.” Henri Zerner, “Classicism as Power” How does Zerner define these terms? What does he associate with classical and classicism?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
