CLAS 2310 - Human Aspirations Among the Greeks and Romans


Identifies three of the great dreams or aspirations of the ancient Greeks and Romans–aspirations that lived on in written form and played an important role in shaping the ideals and aspirations of later Western civilization: 1) the political aspiration to create a just society; 2) the philosophical aspiration to “know oneself” and to be a person of virtue whatever the condition of one’s society; and 3) the Christian aspiration to live a life of loving service that derives from the Christian understanding of the nature of God. Reading quite a bit of primary source literature in English translation expected. Primary means of presentation will be lecture with short periods of discussion interspersed.
