Description

How did the Greeks come to invent the first democracy?
Why did the freedom-loving Greeks condone slavery?
Why was the god Dionysus so important to Greek culture

This course is an introduction to the history and culture of this fascinating but paradoxical civilization. We will laugh with the ancient comedians and think with the ancient philosophers. We will also confront the contradictions of this complex society.

Course Requirements:

There will be approximately 75-100 pages of reading per week, two short projects (for example, a presentation and a short paper), a midterm and a final examination.

Intended Audience:

No previous knowledge is required.
