PHIL 000/3101 - Classical Philosophy (3 cr.)



Description
This course is a survey of the history of philosophy from its beginnings in Greece through the revival of Aristotelian learning in thirteenth century Europe. This is a long period of time, and philosophers had interesting and important things to say about all manner of topics, including science, logic, ethics, politics, religion, and art. Our goal in this course will be to explore some of the most important things that some of the most important philosophers from this era had to say. Authors to be discussed may include Plato, Aristotle, Augustine, Anselm, Averroes, Avicenna, and Aquinas. Topics to be discussed may include the nature of knowledge, the relationship between faith and reason, the theory of Forms, the nature of the good life, and the existence of God.
