This introductory-level course is for students interested specifically in the earliest stages of ancient Western philosophy. The development of Greek philosophy from the Pre-Socratics through Aristotle is addressed, and Hellenistic, Roman, medieval or non-Western thinkers may be considered. Beyond a study of the figures and key ideas, the early view of philosophy as a “way of life” is considered, as is how these movements were intended to transform the lives of those who followed them.
