To the degree that there is mastery of the paradigm forms and the principal parts of the most common irregular verbs, the reading assignments will be made easier and more enjoyable. Careful attention will be paid to the key features of koine Greek, especially as those features part company from Attic Greek morphology and syntax. Two midterm hour exams, a two-hour final, and regular participation in class will determine the course grade; there are no papers. In-class translation is followed by a discussion of the text.

Credits: (3).

Course Homepage: No homepage submitted.

In this course we read selections from the Enneads, the founding text of the Neoplatonic tradition, edited by Porphyry ca. 300 CE. Neoplatonism, a philosophical school that flourished ca. 270-530 CE, attempts to develop an esoteric reading of Plato's dialogues as the foundation for its own religious and contemplative practices. The tradition has had a profound influence on subsequent philosophical and religious movements, including orthodox Christianity, Islamic philosophy, Medieval Jewish philosophy, and Renaissance humanism. Plotinus' philosophy is utterly original, but draws its vocabulary and many of its analytic techniques from the centuries of philosophy that preceded him, including Aristotelian, Stoic, and Middle Platonic.
