GREEK POLITICAL THOUGHT: PLATO TO ARISTOTLE
In this course we examine ancient Greek discourse about the city-state or polis. Readings (in translation) include Plato's Republic and Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics and Politics. For these works, we will consider the themes of force, rationality, virtue, personal honour, happiness, justice, and the political organization of the community.
