Why do people fight wars? What impact do they have on society? Why do empires fail? These are the central questions that we will be exploring in this course. Given the centrality of conflict to Greek and Roman civilization, it is no accident that the greatest historians of the ancient world were all historians of war. In taking this course you will have a chance to explore questions about the nature of war with the aid of some of the greatest minds of the ancient world, and we will encounter some of its most memorable figures, from the crafty Themistocles to Alexander the Great, Hannibal and Julius Caesar.

Course Requirements:

Midterm, final exam, three reading-response papers

Intended Audience:

Open to all with an interest in the place of war in the human condition.

Class Format:

Two lectures and two discussion sections per week.
