This introductory level course is for those interested specifically in the earliest stages of Ancient Western philosophy. We address the development of Greek philosophy from the Pre-Socratics through Aristotle. We may also include Hellenistic, Roman, medieval or non-western thinkers. Beyond a study of the figures and key ideas, we will discuss the early view of philosophy as a “way of life,” and consider how these movements were intended to transform the lives of those who followed them.
