To prepare for the identification section, be familiar with all of the primary source readings, the following concepts, and the basic chronology of and similarities and differences between the schools of thought we have covered so far in this course: ontology the Milesians (Thales, Anaximander, Anaximenes) epistemology the Eleatics (Parmenides, Zeno, Melissus) cosmology the "pluralists" (Anaxagoras, Empedocles) teleology the atomists (Democritus, Leucippus) Platonic forms Hippocratic medicine Aristotelian forms Greek religious medicine (Asclepius) the four Aristotelian causes Platonism monism Aristotelianism pluralism encyclopedism idealism reductio ad absurdum materialism the 2-sphere model rationalism Writing section (40%) On the exam, you will be asked to write a short analysis of one (1) of the four primary source excerpts given below (all excerpts are taken from the Course Reader).

    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.
