The course deals with the meaning of democracy in ancient Athens and the significance of the crisis in political thinking created by the Sophists during the 5th century BCE. We will read much of Thucydides, a number of the plays, and then examine the Platonic and Aristotelian attempts to counter the arguments of the Sophists. The course concentrates on careful readings of the relevant texts, with the most attention to Thucydides, Plato and Aristotle.
