CLASGP03/CLAS3203 The Dialogues of Plato
Dr A. D. R. Sheppard (RHUL) & Dr Jenny Bryan (UCL)
Description: The aim of the course is to study the contribution of Plato to philosophical thought as an integral part of the ancient Greek cultural achievement, to consider the Platonic dialogue as a literary form, and to consider the bearing of the second of these topics on our consideration of the first. The course will involve study of an extensive selection from the writings of Plato with Theaetetus selected for study in depth (about 20% of the teaching time being devoted to this dialogue). The course is not language testing and texts may be studied in translation, but knowledge of Greek will not be a disadvantage.
Assessment will be by three essays of 4,000 words each.
Place: Tuesdays 12-1pm, Livenet (Pearson B87 for non-RHUL students) Fridays 12-1pm (16) Taviton 535 (all students).
